    Here are 2 methods, one of them is semi-automatic and 100% free, the other is 100% automatic but will require a paid account on socialpilot.co (not my site, unfortunately... ;) ).

    Method 1: combine IFTTT+Buffer+Youtube+Facebook (semi automatic and free):
    1. Open a free account on Buffer and:
    A. Add your FB pages you want to schedule posts there
    B. Choose their "Try our Optimal Timing Tool" (under schedule) option and create 3-10 time spots a day for posting

    2. Open a free account on IFTTT and create a recipe:
    A. For the "this" option choose Youtube and connect your Youtube channel (doesn't matter which channel, if you don't have one just create something)
    B. For the IFTTT trigger choose "added to watch later"
    C. For the "that" option choose Buffer and connect your buffer account
    This will send any Youtube video you mark as "watch later" to buffer. Buffer will schedule these posts to be sent to your FB page at the desired hours

    3. While you are in the YT channel from #2-A search for keywords related to your FB page niche. Filter it by "view count" - that way you will have the most viewed videos=the best videos in your niche.
    Go through the videos and mark as "watch later" all the videos you find are cool. I'm using their "Awesome" plan and schedule posts for 1 month in about 5 minutes of work...

    You can go through my detailed step-by-step post as well

    Method 2: Combine socialpilot+Youtube+Facebook (100% automatic, but you will have to have a paid account on socialpilot - or use their trial account)
    1. Open a trial account on socialpilot. Connect your FB pages and schedule hours.
    2. One of the cool features of socialpilot is it can get an RSS and then it will check it periodically, each time the RSS will change socialpilot will take the new items and schedule them. So all we need is to convert youtube search results to RSS. You can use keywords or channels (I prefer to use channels - I pick the leaders of my niche and search for their YT channels).
    Create the RSS and copy its URL to socialpilot.

    That's it, socialpilot will check the RSS and when it will find new videos it will shcedule them for posting :)
    Which means, if you chose the channel option, each time a new video is added to the channel by the channel owner - it will be posted to YOUR FB page, I guess that at some cases you will have their videos on your FB pages before they have them ;)

    Here is the detailed step-by-step video post for this part as well

    I see great results with this method, my pages are growing automatically without any intervention on my side, fans are engaged and the only minor thing left for my lazy brain to do is to work on monetization (hint: sniply and its friends).

    WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS METHOD? Ping me with any thought/insight, I'll help you to make this work!

    I post 5 times a day on each page, the best hours are the "working hours" (e.g., 12pm-4pm) but I also post on 8pm and 12am - since the posts are automatic and don't cost me anything I post also not on the "best hours".
    When the pages are growing (more than 50K followers) and I get more engagement I post 8-12 times a day (the bigger the page the lower the %fans FB will show your post for the same %sharing/likes/commenting).

    Thanks OP for this solid guide! This has given me enough ideas.

    On Buffer free account, can we only make 10 posts in total or 10 posts per day?

    Per profile, total in queue. Lets say, you have your 10 posts queued and then 2 of them are posted, now you have only 8 posts queued, so 2 new can be added.
    Btw, there is a 3rd method (I didn't mention it cause it was too long already, or maybe Im too lazy ;) ):
    You can put the RSS into IFTTT (cause buffer won't allow RSS in the free account), the flow will look like this:
    IFTTT "this"->RSS - "that"->Buffer. Buffer->FB.
    With that you can have an automatic posting of UNLIMITED posts per one FB page (you can't add more than one with one buffer account).

    would it also be worth auto posting to twitter?

    Was thinking of rolling my own bot for this with Spring Integration.

    Wait for my twitter method :)
    But basically, if you find an automatic way to post cool content that your followers will engage with, then don't stop until the fat lady retweets ;)

    This is 100% safe and WH. Go through the process and see why it is 100% legit.
    That's the beauty of this method, it is rare to find automation techniques that are also legit :)
