Going on holiday?
Use the Facebook Calendar to Schedule your Status Updates!
Did you know that you can schedule your Facebook status' to be sent later?
Now, I personally love Hootsuite. It's my favourite scheduler and I don't think that the Facebook scheduling option rivals the functionality of Hootsuite at all, but it gets the job done. If you are working on a smaller scale then this little fellow will suit you just fine. I wouldn't recommend that you schedule for the whole day this way though as it can be quite a time consuming process. If you want to schedule something random then it works just great.
So where do you find the scheduler?
It's available on both personal and business/fan pages alike. You'll find it in the bottom left hand corner of your status update box. It won't show up until you actually click in it to start writing.
The time consuming part is that you have to choose the year, then the month, then the day, then the hour, then the minute! It's not quick by any means, but it's a great start if you aren't in the habit of scheduling.
Once you've added all the information and typed in your statues update hit schedule and it's all set! Easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy!
Now you can still send out your updates to your friends and followers, even when you are going to be away from the computer!
Just a little tip, if you really want to get organised and start scheduling on a regular basis get yourself hooked up to Hootsuite. You'll love it!
