Here’s How to Schedule Facebook Posts

Now, when it comes to scheduling Facebook posts, there are multiple routes you can take.

Things to Keep in Mind before Scheduling Facebook Posts

However, one of the important things to keep in mind is that although you can schedule any kind of posts on your Facebook page, you cannot schedule Facebook Stories and Live Videos.

Also, you need to have a Facebook business page to schedule posts. Posts cannot be scheduled for your personal Facebook account.

Furthermore, scheduled posts on Facebook need to be shared between 20 minutes and 29 days from when you create them. So, make sure to adhere to this rule when setting the date and time for the scheduled posts for your Facebook page.

Having said all this, check out the sections below to learn how to use each of the mentioned apps and platforms to schedule your Facebook posts.

1. Use the Facebook App to Schedule Facebook Posts (Android/iOS)

If you are an avid Facebook creator, I am sure you already have the official Facebook app installed on your Android or iOS device. The good news is that you can use it to easily schedule Facebook posts and save more time than you can imagine.

So, below I have shown how you can use the Facebook app to schedule posts on the platform. Although I have used an iPhone for the demonstration, the steps should be the same on Android.

With that said, check out the steps right below to schedule Facebook posts on your creator page on the platform:

1. Launch the Facebook app on your mobile device.

2. If you are on your personal Facebook account, tap your profile icon on the bottom navigation bar.

3. Next, tap the down arrow button next to your profile picture.

4. Here, select the Facebook page for which you want to schedule your post.

5. Once you switch to your Facebook business page, tap the “What’s on your mind?” section to create a new post.

6. Now, create the post that you want to schedule for your Facebook page and hit the Next button at the top right.

7. On the following page, tap Scheduling options to open it.

8. Here, tap the Schedule for later option.

9. Now, you can choose your preferred date and time for the post and tap the Save button.

10. Once your schedule is saved, tap the Back button to return to the Post page.

11. Then, you can simply hit the Post button at the top right to schedule the post as per your selected date and time.

2. Use the Meta Business Suite App to Schedule Facebook Posts (Android/iOS)

Apart from the official Facebook app, you can also use the Meta Business Suite (formerly Facebook Business Suite) app to schedule your posts. The process is quite similar to the Facebook app. However, the user interface is a bit simpler on the Meta Business Suite app.

So, follow the steps right below to use the Meta Business Suite app on your Android or iOS smartphone to schedule your Facebook posts:

1. Locate and launch the Meta Business Suite app on your mobile device.

2. On the Home page, tap the Create Post button.

3. Now, create the post that you want to schedule on your Facebook page and hit the Next button.

4. On the following page, tap the Schedule for later option.

5. Next, set your preferred date and time for the Facebook post and hit the Done button.

6. Once you set the date and time for scheduling your post, you can preview it once and then tap the Schedule button at the top right.

7. Wait for the post to be scheduled and you are done!

3. Use Facebook Web Client to Schedule Facebook Posts (Desktop)

Now, if you do not like to use your smartphone to post your content on Facebook, you can also use Facebook’s web client to schedule your posts.

So, here’s how to use the Facebook web client to schedule your posts for your Facebook business page:

1. Use a compatible web browser on your PC or laptop to open Facebook.

2. In case you are on your personal Facebook handle, click your profile icon at the top right and select the Facebook page for which you want to schedule a post.

3. Once you switch to your Facebook business page, click the Meta Business Suite option on the Sidebar.

4. Now, click the Create Post button on the following page.

5. Create the Facebook post that you want to schedule for the page.

6. Now, click the toggle beside Scheduling options to turn it on and set a date and time as per your preference.

Note: If you have Active times set for your Facebook page, you can click the Active times button to select from your options.

7. Once you set your preferred date and time for the Facebook post, click the Schedule button below.

8. Wait for the post to get scheduled as per your selected date and time.

9. When you are done, the Meta Business Suite will give you a prompt, notifying you about the successful scheduling of the Facebook post. Click the Done button to close it.

4. Use Third-Party Apps to Schedule Facebook Posts

Now, other than the above tools in the Facebook app and the Meta Business Suite platform, there are also a few third-party social media management tools that you can use to schedule your Facebook posts.

Although I am not going to go through their processes as I think that using the official tools to schedule your posts on Facebook is simpler, I can recommend a few of them to help you expand your horizons.

One of the popular third-party clients that you can use to schedule your Facebook posts is Planable. Planable has its own web client and mobile app that can be used to schedule Facebook posts and manage all your social media handles in one place.
