Facebook Page Multiple Admins and Post Scheduling New Features
Posted on June 2nd, 2012
Wow what a day in Facebook – new features galore have been rolled out. You can now set different levels of Admins for Facebook Pages that have varying levels of access and features (so you can limit the things certain admins can do on your business page).
Full details are on Facebook’s Admin Roles help page but, in summary, the chart below shows you the admin types and the roles each can perform:
- Open your Page’s admin panel
- Click Edit Page
- From the left column menu, click Admin Roles
- Type the names of other people you’d like to add in the open field (if they are not already an admin)
- Click Manager below the name to choose what kind of admin you want to add
- Click Save Changes
You’ll need to enter your password (that you use for your personal facebook profile) to confirm the change.
The second HUGE update is the new ‘Scheduling Feature’ that allows you to post status updates to your facebook page at a time and date in the future. I recommend scheduling to post when your target audience is most likely to be online and interact/engage with your posts.
Full details on how to schedule can be found here – but really it’s just a time feature in your regular status update box allowing you to chose a date and time in the future for your status update before you post it. You can schedule a post up to 6 months in advance in 15-minute intervals.
To Schedule a post to your Facebook page – from your Page’s sharing tool (status update box):
- Choose the type of post you want to add to your Page
- Click the icon in the lower-left of the sharing tool
- Choose the future year, month, day, hour and minute when you’d like your post to appear
- Click Schedule
If you choose a date in the past, the post will appear immediately at the appropriate place on your Page’s timeline. All times correspond to the current time zone you’re in.
There are a host of other features appearing on your facebook pages right now and I expect more to appear over the coming days. The most notable for me are increased ways to promote your page and your posts, new advertising units, rearrangement of links in the home page (advertising account is now listed under pages heading) and further expansion of Facebook Offers – but that’s a whole other blog post on it’s own!
