How to Schedule a Status Update on Facebook

How to schedule a status update on Facebook

If you are a blog or a business that has a Facebook page, did you know that you can schedule your status updates?  I recently learned this and it has been so nice to be able to schedule all my status updates for the day and not have to worry about it anymore!  Having a 3 year old I never know what my day is going to hold, so being able to do this has quickly become my favorite feature on Facebook!  Here’s a quick tutorial on how to do it:

This is such a great feature, and because I’m now able to schedule my updates, I have actually been posting more on Facebook!  Now that I don’t have to be sitting in front of my computer all day to post, the options are unlimited!  If you don’t already follow Ask Anna on Facebook click here to join me!  Now that you know this, will you start scheduling your posts?

  1. Thanks for posting this! I sometimes write my blogs ahead of time and love that I can now schedule my Facebook update for the blog as well! Thanks again!!

    What a coincidence, I was just wondering if this was possible, and your post suddenly appeared in my reader. Thank you!

  3. Wow, what a great tip!!!! I will be using that for sure for my business page on facebook.

  4. Great info here, Anna! Just love your blog! :)

  5. Mmm…I don’t see that on a group page that I manage. Is it only available for businesses?

    • Hmmm, I’m not sure, that’s a good question. I know it’s not available on personal accounts so maybe it’s not in groups either.

  6. OH, bless your heart. I was just thinking of how woefully neglected my business page is, and that by the time I remember to post (at say, 2 a.m.), that no one is even around to see it. This is why we love you!!!

  7. Thank you so much for this post. I found it on Pinterest. Because of this post, I do not have to have interns making posts for me three times a day, I can schedule them to happen by myself.
