Scheduling on Facebook: Changing a Scheduled Post

Facebook has given us the ability to schedule posts, which can really help if you need something posted at certain times, and won’t be available. But what if you schedule something and there is a mistake, or the time or date needs to change? While you still can’t adjust the post for grammar or spelling mistakes, you can delete the post, and start over. And you can change the time of the post!

To schedule a post, you write a post the way you want it to look, then click on the clock on the bottom left of your text box. After you add the year, month, day, and time, you click “Schedule post”. Facebook will pop up with a little box that tells you it has been scheduled.
