Post Scheduling Changes in Facebook

Sharing is caring!

Scheduling Posts in Facebook

There have been some post scheduling changes in Facebook.

If you schedule some of your Facebook posts, you may have noticed that the scheduling clock has disappeared. 

Scheduling Clock on Facebook

I was trying to schedule something on a client’s Facebook page today, when I noticed that there was no longer was a clock there.

I spent a ridiculous amount of time trying to figure out why the clock was gone from that particular page, but not on any of the other ones I manage. I googled it and checked Facebook Help forums, but I didn’t get an answer. 

Then I noticed that little up and down arrow button next to Post.

Guess what it does?!


Facebook changes way to schedule posts

[Tweet “#FacebookTip: Did your post scheduling clock disappear on your Facebook page? Here’s what to do! “]

[contextly_sidebar id=”HkbzxxHewh8I5oRx2j7JCDF9zBfCGdGa”] Tonight when I went back on that page, there was a little pop-up explaining that scheduling had moved. It would have been nice to have had that pop-up earlier in the day when I spent an hour trying to figure out what happened! 

Hopefully, you’ll get the pop-up, but in case you don’t…this is where they have moved it to. Since I am only seeing the change on one of the pages I manage, I am assuming Facebook is rolling it out in phases. So just be aware that the change is coming! 

Schedule away!

Hi, visiting you via the SITS girls. Thank you for this post. I'm very creative and artistic (yep, not very tech-oriented), so this kinds of topics are super useful to me! Wish you the best with your blogging.

G’day from Oz! I am not a huge fan of Facebook so didn't even know you could schedule posts! Thank you so much for teaching me something new. Thanks also for sharing your post at the Say G’day Saturday Linky Party. I’ve just shared this on Pinterest/Facebook/Twitter. I'm also featuring you at my Friday Favorites post!

Hope you can link up with us again this Saturday.

Best wishes, Natasha in Oz

I must live in the dark ages. I didn't even know we could schedule before. Thanks. Scheduling will be really helpful.

Live shares usually get seen by more, but scheduling is sometimes necessary. Who wants to live their whole life on social media?! :) Heading over to stop by your place now...I was just in Alaska in August and loved it!

Ah, good to know. It hasn't moved for me yet, but I'm sure it will. Facebook really keeps us on our toes. Thank you for the information. Thank you also for linking up to Tips and Tricks. I hope to see you again this week.

Ugggh! Is anyone else getting super annoyed with the seemingly constant changes that FB makes?!I\'m really anxious to learn more about the Ello social network. I hear it might actually rival FB but without all the politics, ads, and deception. Thanks for the tip, very helpful!! --- V
