How to use Facebook Tools to Schedule and Preview Posts

On Sunday afternoons, I sit down and plan out my posts for my church for the week.  I follow the same basic pattern each week, but add important announcements for upcoming events.  My full-time job is stay-at-home-mom for 3 young kids, so I have to use scheduling tools to make sure my Facebook posts go out at peak times.   Facebook has provided some clear instructions for scheduling posts.  There are also some great tips for using scheduling effectively.

BONUS! After you have scheduled your posts you can preview them in your activity log:


This is my favorite part of scheduling posts.  You can quickly see if the photos and links loaded properly.  As far as I know, this is the only tool that allows you to preview Facebook posts before sending them out in public.

WARNING!  Do remember to turn off your scheduled posts during national or local emergency situations. You do not want to post content that is not appropriate for the situation.
