Businesses and advertisers can now schedule their stories on Facebook and Instagram.

    Sign up to receive our videos weekly

    Before now, you could only post stories as and when you wanted them to go live. This new feature will help businesses to plan out their stories and increase efficiency by not being stuck to a schedule of physically posting at the best times.

    To start scheduling your stories you need to open Facebook Business Suite on a desktop, then select ‘Create Story’. You can also do this using the Business Suite mobile app. When scheduling your story you need to choose whether it’s for Facebook, Instagram or both. You can then upload your media and customise it. You will then have the option to preview it before publishing or scheduling.
