Now You Can Schedule Posts on Facebook

Big Facebook news today, totally unrelated to stock price: You can now schedule posts! Hooray!

Our AllFacebook colleagues have got a breakdown of the instructions, which look pretty clear cut and simple.

Facebook has also introduced the ability to give different admins different roles. With many people working on a Facebook campaign, this could be plenty useful for PRs. A how-to on that is available here.

Also from Facebook: the company introduced a Promoted Post function yesterday that gives users the ability to highlight big happenings, like a marketing push or event. More detail about that here.

And what about the stock? Well. That’s not doing so good at moment, falling below $28 by midday. But at least Facebook is getting credit for bursting that tech bubble.
