    I can schedule posts in Facebook pages. But it difference with profile posts.
    When I trying to schedule on Facebook profile, it shows year, and month, and date it's not a problem.
    But in the date section, it shows only current date.
    and in the time(hours) it only shows the past time. example. If i creating post at 5pm, it showed me only until 4:50 pm only.
    I tried to post in past date, and i've done. if try to post at 5pm on the day, i could post at 4pm on that current date with schedule option.
    does this work for past time only? not for future schedule?
    appreciated for useful advice. thanks

    I kind of realized these issues today when I was looking for something on Facebook scheduling. They have a number of problems associated with it...

    1. It's not very easy to find. It shows up as a very small icon when you post something on your pages.
    2. It schedules things in the interval of 10 minutes only. You can not schedule anything till upto 9 minutes from now.
    3. It does not let you edit your posts once you have scheduled them.
    4. Finding the scheduled posts is not very easy either.
    5. I don't think Facebook will ever allow bulk scheduling from within their platform.

    I am surprised that Facebook has made these design mistakes in their scheduler. Just as a suggestion, you can try using the scheduler at http://www.sociota.net/Help/PostManagement/SocialmediaPostManagement ... It not only addresses all of these points but also has a number of other goodies.
