How to schedule a post on Facebook

By scheduling a post on Facebook, it will help us to

  • Save time creating individual posts.
  • Engage and connect with more people.
  • Provide consistent content for our followers.

It is a boon for those social media marketers who want to keep up with posting schedules. It works as an antidote mostly for the empty or sad Facebook pages, where the last post was years ago.

For this purpose, it is required that we must have knowledge about scheduling a post to make our life easy and simple.

Note: We can schedule the post only for the business page, not for the personal account.

These are the following two ways through which we can schedule the post on business pages:

  • Natively
    We can schedule a post natively which uses Facebook's own posting scheduler.
  • Third-party scheduler
    We can also schedule a post by using a third-party scheduler. This method takes full advantage of a posting and social media management and tools like Hootsuite.

These are the following steps used to schedule a post on Facebook:

Desktop: Natively

1. Login into Facebook Account.

Firstly, open the Facebook official website by pasting the in the address bar of the preferred web browser. If we are already logged into Facebook, we will directly reach the News Feed page. But if we are not login, then enter the username, phone number, and email address, followed by the password in the given tab.
