How Can I Schedule Automatic Posts on Facebook Page

Scheduling Posts on a Facebook Page

When you run a Facebook page, it can be hard to update it frequently. Luckily, there is a function where you can schedule posts. You can set up a long string of posts that have been written on the same day and schedule them to post at different times. Make it look like you’re on the ball with updating your page and choose when your posts appear to the public.

1. Start by going to your Facebook page. Usually a link to it can be found in the ‘favorites’ section on the left hand sidebar.
