With 2013 fast approaching, at the stroke of midnight do you want to be posting on your Facebook business page or celebrating with friends and family. Whilst it certainly would be nice to welcome in the year with a post to all of your followers, you don’t want to do your page an injustice with poor grammar or spelling. Especially with the likelihood of alcoholic beverages being dispensed.
This is as good a time as any to play with scheduled posts on Facebook if you don’t have the luxury of using Hootsuite which we love. By scheduling your New Years post you can ensure it is sent at the best time personally I would recommend at least a couple of hours after midnight to avoid being swallowed up in the sea of personal posts bound to hit the social network.
Below is very easy to understand instructions to ensure that you have your Facebook post set up well in advance so you can enjoy the nights revelry.
So first things first – when you click the small clock icon it may prompt you to put in a date that the business was opened. Alternatively you can go to the admin panel and add it there. You can see below that it is pretty simple.
Now you can get down to the business of scheduling out your posts
Click on the little clock at the bottom of your status update and select the year, date and time you want your post to be published and then click schedule.
Your activity log shows you your scheduled posts and allows you to edit your post or change the time if necessary.
Once done you can get on with enjoying your New Years celebrations. From all of us at Social Media AOK, we wish a happy new year, stay safe and play responsibly. Happy Facebook-ing.
