@SocialSprite 's Networking Tips of the Week ~ 04.06.12

Social Sprite’s Social Media Tip of the Week

This week there were two new things introduced on Facebook. The first one is the five new admin roles for Facebook page administrators. This is helpful if you have more than just you as an admin on your page. And it is a good idea to have someone else as an admin just in case you get kicked off of your page.

The other new thing is the ability to schedule your Facebook fan page posts using Facebook instead of a third party app like Hootsuite.

Below are the details from Facebook’s Help pages.

Page admins can have 5 different roles, each with different abilities. Only managers can change what kind of admin someone is. All admins are managers by default.

The table below outlines the 5 admin roles (across) and what they're able to do (down):

Content Creator
Insights Analyst
Manage Admin Roles
Edit the Page and Add Apps
Create Posts as the Page
Respond to and Delete Comments
Send Messages as the Page
Create Ads
View Insights

How do I schedule a post to appear on my Page later?

You can prepare a post and schedule it to appear later by adding a date and time in the future before you post it. You can schedule a post up to 6 months in advance in 15-minute intervals.

From your Page's sharing tool:
1.  Choose the type of post you want to add to your Page
2.  Click the clock icon in the lower-left of the sharing tool
3.  Choose the future year, month, day, hour and minute when you'd like your post to appear
4.  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.

To change what you scheduled or to just see it go to the admin panel on your fan page and click on Manage and in the drop down menu click on Use Activity Log.
