Want to schedule posts on your Facebook profile?

Scheduling helps us to send posts at the peak time of your targetted audience. Thus you can ensure maximum engagements and clicks on them.

The social network doesn’t allow us to schedule posts on profile using third-party tools. But thankfully you can schedule posts on your Facebook profile as a built-in feature for up to 12 hours in advance.

Today we’ll tell you how to schedule a Facebook timeline post without using any apps.

How to schedule your Facebook profile posts?

Sign into your Facebook account first.

Type your message or paste webpage link in the text box to schedule.

Three dots icon will appear below the box, next to the Feeling/Activity option. Click there to get additional tools.

Now you will see a number of options such as photo/video, tag friends, GIF, etc. Choose Edit Date.

Set a time for your post to be sent out. You can schedule it for the same day only up to 12 hours in advance. When finished, click on the Share button.

Our scheduled contents usually appear on the page at the chosen time only. Until then, it will be hidden from your followers and friends. But here’s a change. The scheduled posts on your Facebook profile will appear from the very next moment of their savings. They will come with a countdown timer that informs the audience how much time left for the post to appear in the news feeds. Your friends can still like and comment on the posts based on the privacy preferences you set.
