In order to get the most results in your FaceBook marketing effort, you have to post very often. If you are using your profile to market your products or opportunity there is no scheduling option to do it directly on FaceBook. In the contrary, if you are using a FaceBook page, there is now a very useful scheduler available.
How do I schedule a post to appear on my Page later?
You can prepare a post and schedule it to appear later by adding a date and time in the future before you post it. You can schedule a post up to 6 months in advance in 10-minute intervals.
From your Page’s Timeline:
If you choose a date in the past, the post will appear immediately in the appropriate place on your Page’s Timeline. All times correspond to the current time zone you’re in. You can see and edit scheduled posts in your Page’s activity log.
