Facebook recently made some changes and removed the ability to schedule posts directly on Facebook pages.
NOTE: This post is about scheduling posts to a Facebook Page. If you are looking to schedule posts to a personal Facebook Profile, check out this post instead.
To schedule posts on your Facebook page, you now need to go to the Publishing Tools section of your Facebook page.
To find the Publishing Tools section, look on your Facebook page’s navigation sidebar:
Once there, click “Posts & Stories” in the left sidebar:
Then click “Create Post” in the top right corner:
Then create your post and choose “Schedule Post” in the dropdown arrow.
That’s it! Your Facebook page post is now scheduled.
Note: Facebook does NOT allow you to schedule posts more than 75 days into the future.
Alternative ways to schedule your Facebook page posts:
- Use Creator Studio. You can schedule posts on Facebook and Instagram using Facebook’s Creator Studio (still has the same 75 day limitation though)
- Use a social media scheduling tool (allows you to schedule posts MORE than 75 days into the future 😊)
Need a FREE social media scheduling tool?
If you need a social media scheduling tool, OneUp allows you to schedule and automatically repeat your posts on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Instagram (including Instagram Stories) and Google My Business.
And yes, there is a Free Plan 😊
Here are some of the features:
Posting to multiple accounts – OneUp makes it easy to post to Instagram (with direct posting), Facebook (Profiles, Pages, and Groups), LinkedIn (Profiles and Pages), Twitter, Pinterest, and Google My Business all at once.
You can customize the post for each social network, add multiple images to each post, and directly import free, high-quality images with our Unsplash integration.
Schedule Instagram Stories – Schedule Instagram Stories with OneUp, and receive notifications on your phone when it’s time to publish them.
Canva integration – OneUp directly integrates with Canva. Just click the “Design on Canva” button in the scheduler, and Canva will open directly inside of OneUp.
Click the “Publish” button in the Canva editor, and your image will be uploaded to OneUp directly. No need to download images from Canva, then upload to OneUp 🙂
Repeating post – OneUp gives you the option to automatically repeat your posts at whatever interval you choose, such as every 3 weeks, or even “the first Monday of each month”. Then post it now, schedule it for the future, or save the post in your Drafts folder.
Posting to Google My Business – OneUp is one of the few social media scheduling tools that supports Google My Business post scheduling. OneUp supports Call-To-Action buttons, and different post types such as Event posts.
You can even choose for your post’s image to be added to the Photos section of Google My Business as well.
Auto-posting from RSS feeds – You can connect an RSS feed to OneUp, and have posts automatically published whenever there is something new in the feed. Or, you can choose to have each new item from the feed go to your Drafts folder, so you can review which posts you want to publish.
Bulk uploading posts – OneUp supports bulk uploading posts from a CSV, directly from your computer, or via OneUp’s Chrome extension.
Customizable UTM parameters – OneUp lets you customize UTM parameters so you can keep track of how your links are performing in Google Analytics.
Link Shortening – Connect your Bitly account and OneUp will automatically shorten any links and allow you to track clicks through Bitly.
Schedule Twitter Threads – Not many scheduling tools allow you to schedule Twitter threads (AKA tweetstorms), however you can do so with OneUp, and even add images, GIFs, and videos on each tweet in your thread.
And one last thing: OneUp has received over 260 positive reviews on Capterra 😊
