Finally, imagine my excitement as a page owner and admin of many Facebook pages to see a notification in my activity log last week saying I can “Now edit the text and timing of scheduled posts before they are published.”  Whoohoo, happy dance, virtual high fives all around.  This is a MUCH desired feature for Facebook pages.

As it currently stands, a simple grammar mistake or typo on a post you’ve already scheduled requires you to start all over with a new post and delete the erroneous post. Yes you can copy and paste, its not the end of the world, but if you’ve linked to an article or attached a photo in your post then it does require additional steps.  Hard as I try, mistakes just happen and having to rewrite posts is a waste of time and a silly frustration!

Oh but that appears to changing!  Facebook posted this lovely little note onto virtually all my pages this week.

Edit schedule posts in Facebook activity log

 

How exciting!  I immediately started testing it out by trying to make a change to a post I scheduled.  Drum roll please…………….Nothing! Nothing happened. Zip, zilch, nada.  You click the button and it just disappears.  Ok, wait, let me go check another page. Same thing!  Check another, same thing.  Check a few more…..nothing happens when you click the ‘edit’ button. Major bummer!

It appears we’ll have to wait a little bit longer.  I’ll keep checking. The button is there, waiting for me to use it.  Use it I will as soon as I can.

So, if by chance the edit button works for you, please let me know! I want to hear about it.  Comment here or over on on my Facebook page.
