Just note that posts must be scheduled at least 10minutes before you want them to post.

Step 1: Click into the status box as normal (What’s on your mind?)

Step 2: Choose the time you want to schedule the post.


Step 3: Choose year (2012) this automatically the dropdown box for you to add month appears, date, hour and minutes. Once you have chosen the year, the month appears, then the date, then the hour and finally the minutes.

Then click schedule!
