Community managers; here is the answer to a free weekend!

Facebook has rolled out its new scheduling service and it’s about time! Finally Facebook is making the lives of community managers of social media marketing firms just a little bit easier.

You can choose the date and time of your post. No longer do we have to worry about missing a post because of a meeting or a weekend. However, there are some glitches still.

For example, you are unable to schedule a post unless the page has a definitive launch or start date on the timeline. Without that, for some reason Facebook says, “No, you have to tell us when you started before you can schedule a future post.” Silly, right? That’s all that I have seen so far as far as glitches go. It’s a small inconvenience that is easily fixed, but what’s the point?

Facebook is also giving different administrative rights to different administrators. Every manager can have a different role. This is a good thing for clients so that they can manage who is an administrator and who isn’t. It also allows community managers and directors to determine which intern, if any, have certain rights and privileges. At the end of the day, everything done online is sensitive to each brand.

It can also lead to an increase of revenue for Facebook! With managers now less focused on timely posts, they can focus more on advertising and spending more money in the Facebook ad platform. It is important for them that they keep a float as investors are very concerned on the possible “Facebook Flop.” I’m glad to see they are getting themselves together.

Welcome to the real world Facebook! You have made our lives that much easier and no longer do we have to bring our laptops on weekend trips. You’re the best! For all of us that do work to no end, what do you think of this newfound freedom?
