How to Use Facebook’s Free Planner to Schedule Content for Your Business

Are you looking for a way to better plan your Facebook posts? If so, you should consider using Facebook’s free content planner. The planner allows you to schedule your posts in advance, which can help you ensure that your Facebook page remains active and engaging. The planner also allows you to see how your posts will look when they’re published, which can help you determine which posts are most likely to be successful.

There are a lot of great tools out there to help you with your social media, but one of the most popular (not to mention 100% free) is Facebook. With 1.94 billion active users, it’s a great place to share your content and connect with your audience. But scheduling and creating that content can take up a lot of time. 

That’s where the Facebook content planner comes in. This free tool from Facebook (I should say, technically it’s Meta….) allows you to schedule your posts, save time, and optimize your page for success. You can create posts, and events, as well as manage your groups and ads. 

The planner is easy to use – just log in with your Facebook account and get started. You can create a post by typing in what you want to say, selecting an image or video from your computer or from Facebook’s library, and setting the date and time you want it to publish.

Here’s the nitty gritty.

Step 1: Go to

You can also filter to see where you’ve been sharing to–for example to see only the posts you’ve shared in groups vs your own space. This is a great quick way to see if you’re sharing enough (or perhaps too much) in groups.

Add photos and videos. Add hashtags.

And of course preview everything on both mobile and desktop views!
