How to Schedule Post on Facebook Fan Page

~ Posted on Monday, August 18, 2014 at 6:54 AM ~

As some of you might noticed, I am more active on my Facebook page and being someone who absolutely loves to read stuff, I tend to come across with lots of interesting articles on the Internet and a lot of these articles are what I personally feel worth sharing on my fan page.

I do my best to space out the posting of these articles so as not to overcrowd our FB walls, so I scheduled all my postings days in advance on average by 2 hours gap starting from 9am until 11pm (Malaysia time). There are days where the gaps are closer especially when I came across those articles that I feel I must share at that moment.

FYI, I don't really remember what I have scheduled earlier unless I spend some time browsing through my scheduled postings (which I don't often do), hence there might be more negative news in a day etc. I actually have to explain this in order to answer some individuals on my FB page who asked why am I postings so many negative news on a particular day.

Anyway, here is a quick tutorial on how to schedule post on an FB Fan Page:

Step 1: Copy paste the text and link that you want to be posted on your FB Fan Page. I normally will copy the first few paragraphs or sentences from the article as excerpt followed by the URL link to the article.


Step 2: Right below the preview thumbnail of the article, click on the 'Schedule Post' link and select the date from the popup calendar followed by the time you wanted to schedule to post the article.

Step 3: Once you have determined the date and time to schedule the posting of the article, click the 'Schedule' button. You will then see the following screen telling you that your post has been scheduled. You may click 'Close' to close the screen.

Step 4: If you realised that you may want to change your scheduled date or time, click on the 'View Activity Tab'.


Step 5: Look for the post you wanted to change and click on the arrow button on the right hand corner of the related post. You will see a drop-down menu with options to reschedule, edit the text of the article, pubilsh the post immediately or to delete the scheduled post.


I hope this article serves to help you in planning out how to schedule your posts on your Facebook fan page!
