Post On Your Page

The primary communication on Facebook happens through posts, as it's the easiest always available way to talk to some or all of your followers.

Create Basic Posts


Write Something…

Posting is easy. Just start typing where it says “Write something…” Your update can be about anything you think supporters will be interested in, like announcing an event or showing photos of a project. All your posts are visible on your organization’s Page and may show up in News Feed for people who’ve liked it.


Use Post Features

Click the camera icon to add a photo or video to your post. Click the face icon to indicate what you’re doing or how you’re feeling. Click the location icon to add where you are, which is helpful if you’re posting from different locations or an event. Click the down arrow next to Publish and select Schedule to schedule your post for later. Click the target icon to choose the audience that should see your post. This is helpful if you want to show your posts only to followers by interest, age, gender, location, language, relationship status or education level. You must enable targeting in Settings>General>News Feed Audience and Visibility for Posts.


Insert Photos or Video

If you want to add photos or video to your post, click Photo/Video. When posting photos you can upload a single photo or a series of photos in an album, carousel or slideshow.


Select Your Files

Select the files you want to upload or drag and drop your files into your post. You can drag and drop multiple photos at a time. If you want to remove a photo from your post draft, hover over the photo and click x in the top-right corner. You can also add a description of your photo.


Publish Your Post

When you’re ready, just click publish. Your post will be published to your page timeline and distributed to Page follower’s personal News Feed.

Extra Features

Give Important Posts More Attention

When your post is published, you can bring more attention to it. Click the arrow in the top-right corner of your post, and then choose:

  • Pin to Top to keep your post at the top of your Page. It’ll be the first post people see, which is great if you have an important update or event.
  • Embed Post to add the post to your website. If there’s a special post you want website visitors to see, we’ll give you a snippet of code to add to the HTML of your web page. When people click the post on your site, they’ll go right to your Facebook Page.

Hide a Public Post From Your Timeline

After you publish a post to your Timeline, you have the option to hide that post from being visible to the public. This can be useful when you are creating tailored posts to targeted audiences that you do not think will be valuable for your general audience to see.

  1. Go to the post on your Page’s Timeline.
  2. Click in the top-right corner.
  3. Select Hide from Timeline to hide it.

Delete A Post From Your Page

  1. Go to the post on your Page’s Timeline.
  2. Click in the top-right corner.
  3. Select Delete from Page.
