One thing I find difficult with blogging is the time it takes to interact socially and share and get the information I post here out to my readers and fans who I hope find it valuable. So you can imagine my excitement when I discovered Facebook has implemented the option to schedule posts on your faceobook business page.
Scheduling posts makes sharing content with your facebook followers and friends super simple. The first thing you have to do is to remember to schedule the time before you post. This is important otherwise you can’t set the time you want for the post to be shared.
The second step is simply adding in when you want your post to go out. A good time I’m told is after 6pm. That’s when most people get home after work and jump on to see what everyone has been up to for the day. But you can schedule your posts for whatever date or time you want. The options allows you to set the : YEAR, MONTH, DATE, HOUR, MINUTES so you control when your fans see you want them to.
This is a great tool for facebook businesses or blogs. It will cut down on having to use 3rd party apps like Hootsuite to schedule your posts. Sharing becomes easier and hopefully your engagement will improve. I know it cut down my sharing by two hours last night and I was able to set up my posts for the week, which was great! Giving me more time for family and friends.
Have you tried to schedule a post on facebook yet?
