How To Schedule Shares On Facebook

One of the best was to increase traffic to your business or blog fan facebook page is to share great content. Not only will your current followers be more likely to like or comment, but hopefully they will share attracting new potential followers to your page.

How To Schedule Shares On Facebook – Business Page Tips

Currently, if you see a great post and you click to share that post, it gets shared immediately with no option to schedule. It’s not a great idea to dump several shares to your followers at once, but to nicely space them out throughout the day. This keeps your page in the news feeds and hopefully supplies them with relevant content that may interest them. That’s why they follow you – right?! This is so easy and is a great way to save time engaging with followers!

  2. OH! That makes so much sense! I was trying to figure this out the other day. Thanks, Susan!

  3. I’m bummed. “Schedule Post” doesn’t show up for me. :(

  4. Thanks for this. I also want to stagger when things post on FB and Pinterest and Google+ in case people are following me multiple ways. They don’t need to see it 3 times in 5 minutes.

  5. Great information! I am learning so much! Thank you!

  6. This is great news! I just scheduled my first post – the link to this blog post! Thanks so much for sharing. :)

  7. Thank you for sharing this, I’m super excited to try this tomorrow and schedule my first share on FB. :)

  8. I need to remember to do that more often. Thanks for the reminder tip.

    Shannon ~

  9. Great tip! Found you at Hit Me With Your Best Shot. :)

  10. Thank you for the tip. It really annoyed me they don’t give you an option to schedule shared posts built in!
