How to Schedule a Post on Your Facebook Profile (3 Ways)

Schedule post Facebook profile

A social media post is closely related to the time it posts. It will get the maximum exposure only if you share on the peak time which varies based on the geographical location of your target audience. In short, we can say that success of a campaign depends on the keywords you use plus the time of posting.

Facebook page owners can easily schedule a post via built-in features. But unfortunately, the social network doesn’t allow you to schedule a profile update for a future date. It can be scheduled until the current moment or backdate. So we should use third-party tools to overcome the limitation of the default schedule feature.

Due to recent Facebook policy changes, third-party apps can no longer post to Facebook profiles
