10 ways to schedule Facebook status updates


Facebook, A major social networking site which has attracted almost all the Internet users and so much addictive that we always forget to have our snacks, finish our works etc.. So we always schedule ourselves to manage the time properly and hence finish our work completely !

We suggest => Do you know A to Z of Facebook?

The most important activity any Facebook user does is updating his/her Facebook status. In order to manage time you must also schedule yourself while using Facebook,Β  So placing a timer besides you and then staying on Facebook doesn’t work all the time. So I have found few online tools,applications and tricks to schedule your Facebook status update while you are busy working or sleeping ;).

Altogether there are 10 ways to schedule Facebook status updates as shown below :

1. TweetDeck

The ultimate twitter client which is not only used to schedule tweets on your twitter profile, but also your Facebook status updates and the Fan pages which you own. Once scheduled below is the screenshot how the update looks in your Facebook profile.

2. Hootsuite

Hootsuite is a web based Twitter application, which is used to post tweets as well as Facebook status updates to your profile as well as the facebook fan pages. These updates can be scheduled easily and very quickly. Below is the screenshot of the Hootsuite application to make you understand its working.

3. CoTweet

CoTweet is not just another Twitter based web application, but a boon for all the corporates who wish to use Twitter for successful business.

This application can be used to schedule the Facebook status updates by integrating with account as shown below :

Once the integration is complete you can easily schedule the message as shown below :


This online tool powered by Stumbleupon , not only shortens the URL but also syndicates the content to Twitter, Facebook and Stumbleupon.

The content to be posted can be easily scheduled and sent to Twitter and Facebook. This is possible only if you integrate both the Twitter and Facebook account to this online tool.

After the integration you can schedule the posts with or without url to both Facebook and Twitter as shown below :

The only drawback in this tool is the status can have only 140 characters, As it is mainly used for twitter not Facebook. But still you can schedule your Facebook status which are very short and simple ?

5. Social Tomorrow

This online tool provides scheduling of both the tweets as well as Facebook status updates, but very limited.

It allows only 10 messages each to be posted on your Facebook profile, Fan Pages and groups monthly. If you want to post more then you should upgrade your free plan to premium plan.

Below is the screenshot to understand the working of this tool :

The scheduled message appears on your Facebook wall with a hash tag #SocialTomorrow as shown below :

6. Later Bro

This tool schedules both the Twitter and Facebook status updates without registering for the site. You can directly sign in to your Facebook account from here and validate to schedule the status updates.

After validating the Facebook account, the next step is to schedule the message as shown below :

This tool has few drawbacks :

  • The message to be scheduled is to be of 140 characters long only.
  • The messages cannot be sent to the Fan Pages or groups.

7. Sendible

Sendible is the ultimatum of all the tools. As shown above it allows you to schedule Facebook status, Facebook post, Facebook pages and groups with link previews.

The user interface of SendibleΒ  is similar to any normal mail client as shown below :

Yet again this tool too has 100 messages to be sent monthly to Facebook and other Social Networks, if you want to send more messages then you need to upgrade to premium services.

8. SocialOomph

SocialOomph is a must use web based application which is mainly used for Twitter and allows the scheduling of Facebook status and posts only in the paid version.

9. Schedule Facebook Posts via email

As you all should know that Facebook status can be updated by sending emails to the mail-id given to each facebook user whuch can be found here =>Β  as shown below :

Tech-Tip: Make sure you don’t share this mail id with anyone as it acts as a status updater to your Facebook account.

Now here is a trick, we know that by sending mail we can easily update the Facebook status, So why not schedule you email using Microsoft Outlook or Lettermelater.

Note: The subject of you email is the status which will be updated and the attachment added will be shown as the photo uploaded.

10. Selective Tweets Facebook Application

This application allows you to add selected tweets to your Facebook profile or Fan Pages and to add any tweet to your Facebook status you must add a hashtag #FB at the end of it.

Firstly configure you twitter account is this application , later upon which you can easily update your Facebook status as well as Fan Pages.

Recently I came across 15 Free Twitter Tools For Scheduling Future Tweets and using any 1 among these tools with the selective tweet application will allow you to schedule your both twitter account as well as your Facebook profile status.Β  Isn’t that great ?? πŸ˜‰


Thanks for reading friends πŸ™‚ I would like to know If I have left any other application or tool to schedule Facebook status updates, If Yes then hit the comment section ;).

    1. Sunil Jain says:

      Hi Sourav πŸ™‚

  2. Mani Viswanathan says:

    Gr8 list up..similar to the one that Rahul mentioned for twitter, though some are new.

    I use mainly Hootsuite, sometimes Tweetdeck too

    1. Sunil Jain says:

      Oh great πŸ™‚
      But you can't schedule images in your status using Hootsuite or TweetDeck πŸ˜‰

      So why not try Sendible or email scheduling !

  3. Imran Yousaf says:

  5. Saket says:

    I see no point in scheduling status updates for future unless you want to wish anyone birthday or something like that?

    1. Sunil Jain says:

      Hi Saketh πŸ™‚
      I am not sure about the advance b'day wishes , but scheduling a Facebook status is important when you are busy for the whole day, but still want to update you status with inspiring quotes.

      I use it rarely to wish them for festivals while I am busy with my college project and household work.

      Many social media addicts use it to be active on Facebook even while they are sleeping πŸ™‚

      Now what do you have to say about these tools buddy ?? πŸ™‚

      Thanks for commenting πŸ™‚

  6. Shilpi says:

    Quite informative post Sunil. Thanks for the lists, very helpful if one wants to schedule his/her status updates on Facebook, though I don't see a need to schedule my status updates. Don't you think it's better to schedule your status updates if you have a fan page? But still your hard work shines here. Cheers dude!!! πŸ™‚

    1. Sunil Jain says:

      Welcome back to Tech18 Shilpi πŸ˜‰

      Few of these also works with Fan Pages and most of the bloggers use it for groups and Fan Pages only.

      I am sure you will use it when you come up with your own blog πŸ™‚

      Thanks for commenting πŸ™‚

  7. Eva says:

    Thanks! I already use Hootsuite, but not for scheduling stuff in advance. Now I'm going to give it a try!

  8. Patton says:

    Really useful, thanks a lot!

  9. kioshi says:

    Good list. Pity only the heavy hootsuite site and tweetdeck are the free, unlimited options. Laterbro is limited to twitter status size.

  10. Joe says:

    Its an application integrated into facebook as a facebook app that does the trick for me…and its free and unlimited…

    I use the scheduling option to schedule my boss' fb and twitter posts throughout the day. I have found twaitter to be awesome for when I need to send them all to the same account, however if you forget to uncheck the box to unping it from sending to fb, it sends and makes you look tacky.

  15. Andrea Torres says:

    Sendible does not longer have the free version. πŸ™ now you have to pay for every single plan.

  16. Alejandro Rigatuso says:

    You can also schedule facebook updates with a very simple application called PostCron, PostCron is the easiest application of this kind.

  17. p90x says:

    I use Hootsuite and like it…thanks for the list, I'll be checking out some of the other options.

  18. Anonymous says:

    anyone know which one of these scheduling tool’s provides the image and text of a link with your scheduled post?

    ex: I use a fb page to promote blog posts. I would need a scheduler that links text/image/link as if you were posting a link regularly.Β 

    thaks! Β
