Can I schedule Facebook posts on a personal profile?

This post goes over scheduling Facebook posts on a personal profile.

Prior to August of 2018, you could schedule Facebook posts on personal profiles using third-party scheduling tools.

However, on August 1st, 2018, Facebook changed their API and removed the ability for scheduling tools to schedule Facebook posts directly to personal profiles.

However, with the social media scheduling tool OneUp, you can schedule posts, Stories, and Reels to your personal Facebook profile, and receive a notification on your phone when the time comes.

You just open the notification, which will copy your post’s caption to your clipboard and open the Facebook mobile app, and you simply paste in your post.

Here are some screenshots showing how it works:

How to schedule posts to a personal profile on Facebook

OneUp is a social media scheduling tool that allows you to schedule posts on Facebook, Twitter, Google My Business, TikTok, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and Instagram.

After connecting your personal Facebook profile to OneUp, click “Create a post”:

Schedule post personal Facebook profile

Then start creating your post, adding your text description and any images or video to your post:

You can attach up to 10 images to your post.

Then choose to either repeat this post, or have it just post once, and then schedule your post for a date and time in the future.

How do personal Facebook Profile notifications work?

You’ll receive a push notification on your phone at the time you scheduled the post for.

Tap the notification, and it will open your post in the OneUp mobile app:

Tap “Share this on Facebook”, and your post caption will automatically be copied. Tap “Got it” and it will open the Facebook app with your image (if your post had one):

Then you are ready to paste in your caption. Tap in the caption box and you will get a “Paste” option.

Your caption was automatically copied previously, so you just need to paste it in:

You are now ready to share your post to your personal Facebook Profile 😊

TIP: If you miss a notification, you can find all your recent notifications in the Notification History tab in the mobile app:

You can also schedule Facebook Stories and Facebook Reels to your personal Facebook profile with OneUp using the same method 😊

  1. I have been struggling to get a such an app

    Thank you so much. Now my business is going to grow exponentially

  2. That’s great and all, but is there a method where you can schedule so posts can go live when you don’t have cell service?

    1. Unfortunately there is no way to schedule personal FB profile posts that publish directly.

    1. Hey Andrea, Facebook’s API does not allow any scheduling tools to post directly to personal FB Profile (they only allow so for FB Pages and Groups that you are the Admin of).

      So the only possible way to schedule posts to a personal FB profile is via this mobile notification method.

      We wish OneUp could post directly to personal FB profiles too, but this is the best that we can possibly do with the constraints.
