Strange way to begin a blog post, I realize. I wanted to tell you about a recent discovery on another hidden tool in Facebook. Turns out, it was just a glitch with the Activity Log. When I tried to duplicate the experience, I couldn't. I tried it on a PC. I tried it on my Mac. I tried it in Explorer, Chrome and Firefox. No go.
I like the new scheduling tool in Facebook. A lot. But sometimes you need to double check your work or schedule a different post. So where do you find that post for editing/cancelling?
If you see this window (below), you'll see it's the Activity Log. When I clicked it - several times during the week of June 10, it wouldn't load. (Working just fine now, thankyouverymuch ... At least for now!)
A little background - you can schedule posts in Facebook using that little clock icon that appears in your sharing tool. Easy squeezee. After that, it's nice to know (because you'll probably forget) what you've got scheduled when.
If you don't see that window, don't sweat it. Here's what to do. Go to Edit Page and click "Use Activity Log."
But ... If you, too, start experiencing the page load problem like I did, try this: Instead of using Facebook as your Page, use it as yourself.
See that "Use Facebook as Juliette" in the list to the left? Don't click it.
Go, instead, to the top arrow (see below) and select "Use Facebook as: YourNameHere." Once you click Use Facebook as "your name here," you'll be sent to your Timeline.
From your Timeline, go to your personal Activity Log, and there you'll see the scheduled posts.
You won't be able to line edit the content there (which stinks!) but you can adjust the time (really handy!). Trust me. It's really handy if you need it. And if it works.
