Plan your social media in advance and learn how to schedule your posts to Facebook and Instagram with Facebook Creator Studio. Planning ahead allows you to post frequently to your audience, maintain the quality of your posts and keep your design visuals and messaging more consistent.
Schedule your posts in advance using Facebook Creator studio. If your Business Instagram and Facebook Page are linked you can schedule to Facebook as well as Instagram.
Starting at your Facebook page select the ‘more’ tab and then ‘Publishing tools’ in the top menu. Scroll to the tab ‘Creator Studio’ in the left menu. When Creator Studio loads you will see the Facebook and Instagram icons at the top (if your profiles are linked). Select the Instagram icon. On this page you will see content library for your Instagram. Select ‘create post’ on the left. You will be able to schedule to IGTV or schedule posts to Instagram. When the dialog box appears you can add a caption, location and image just as you would through the Instagram app.
There is an option to schedule to Facebook, you can either publish or schedule to a future date. Do the exact same with the blue Instagram ‘publish’ button. If you select the arrow to the right of the publish button you will be able to select a date and time to schedule the Instagram post. Once you post is scheduled the dialog box disappears and you are taken back to the content library.
In the content library you can edit or delete any scheduled posts by either clicking on them or selecting the checkbox to the left of each box and selecting the appropriate buttons in the navigation.
