Social media rules and changes are constantly changing. It is so hard to keep up! But in our constant efforts to stay up to date and keep our social media campaigns on task we must learn to adapt. For those of us who do not like change it is problematic.
We all seem to fall into routines and facebook and twitter posts, etc. start to get boring and redundant. This is why I say you should make it fun, be creative, or if you cannot do this- hire someone! This is not a fad that will go away folks. Social media is here to stay. Accept it, Embrace it! There really is no other option.
Here are some new tips for Facebook and the new scheduling options. This can be a big help for you if you are one who overbooks yourself or are short on time.
To schedule your post, simply go to your page’s sharing tool like you usually do, and select the type of post you want to add to your page. Once you’ve crafted your update, click the little blue clock icon in the lower left corner of the sharing tool, and select the year, month, day, hour, and minute at which you’d like your post to appear in the future. Then click ‘Schedule‘!
You can schedule a post up to 6 months in advance in 15-minute intervals. If you choose a date in the past, however, the post will appear immediately on your page’s timeline. And no time zone calculations are needed, either — Facebook will automatically correspond to the time zone you’re in! Pretty easy, huh?
Facebook has made no mention of a timeline for when these two features will be rolled out to all pages, so just be on the lookout.
