I love this new feature a lot because I can update my Facebook fan page for the morning crowd and night crowd, easily!

Once you’re on your Facebook Fan Page you’ll notice in the update box, a teeny clock icon.

facebook-schedule-page-update

When you click the clock it MAY ask you to set the date of when you started your Facebook page. Otherwise it’ll show you a drop down for year, month, day, hour, and minute.

facebook-schedule-page-update-2

Once you’ve done that, click Schedule.

If you want to remove, edit, or just see your scheduled updates, you’ll need to navigate to your page’s activity log. MAKE SURE you’re logged in under your PERSONAL profile, NOT your Facebook Fan Page’s profile name because for some odd reason the activity log doesn’t work if you’re under the FB page name (I have to be logged in as Sarah Vincent NOT as OneStarryNight for this feature).

Hopefully this tiny tutorial helps! If you have problems or have any questions, please let me know.

Good to know! That will save me having to use HootSuite (which I hate) to schedule updates on my company’s fan page! Thanks!

I don’t seem to have the “Manage” button on my admin page… is this because I have less than 30 likes, as I have just started by FB business page?
I really want to be able to schedule posts – it’ll make life sooo much easier!
