How to Set a Date to Stop Showing a Post in the Newsfeed

Have you ever been scrolling through your Facebook Newsfeed and came across a post informing you of an event you would like to attend but has recently passed, or displaying an offer that is already expired? Time sensitive posts can be a hassle for everyone, whether you’re the poster or the user viewing the post. Facebook has made it a little easier to combat this by allowing users to set an end date to their post’s Newsfeed display.

Setting an end date for your Post will stop displaying the post in the Newsfeed where anyone can see it in their feed, but the post will remain on your Pages Timeline. This means users won’t see a post for something they’ve missed unless they specifically go on to your Page and scroll through your posts- seeing past events in this case may even be beneficial as the user will know you are active.

 

Step 1)

Head over to your Facebook Business Page. Locate the “Write something…” box.

Step 2)

Create your post as usual, when you have finished locate and click the downward facing arrow next to publish.

Step 3)

Select “Schedule” from the drop down menu.

Step 4)

Check the box next to “Stop Newsfeed Distribution”. Set a time and date to stop showing your post in the Newsfeed.

*If you want to publish your post immediately, un-check the box next to “Publication”. Otherwise you will need to schedule your post at least 10 minutes in the future.

Step 5)

Click Publish or Schedule (depending on your choice in Step 4). You will see on your Page that you have at least one scheduled post.

 

 

How to Post on Facebook in Multiple Languages

For many Real Estate Professionals the ability to post on Facebook in multiple languages is integral to their business. Facebook’s mission has always been to build a more global community, with this in mind they have provided Pages with the ability to make the same post in multiple languages, which will then be shared to users in the Pages network. The language shown will depend on the viewers Facebook preferences (location and language settings).

Don’t miss out on any business because of a social media language barrier, we will outline the steps needed to post in multiple languages. We suggest making any posts about your Listings, Services, and any advice from you in all of the languages you are fluent in. Remember not to make a post in any language you are not fluent enough in to complete a Real Estate transaction.

 

Step One)

Head over to your Business Page, locate and click Settings at the top of the Page.

 

Step Two)

In the General Settings area, locate and click edit next to “Post in Multiple Languages”. You may need to scroll a bit to find it.

Step Three)

Locate the box next to “Allow people who manage this Page to post in multiple languages”, click to check the box. Click SAVE.

Once you have made this change to your Page you will not have to perform steps 1-3 again during later posting unless you would like to remove the ability to post in multiple languages. 

Step Four)

Head out of the Admin area and back to your Page’s Timeline by clicking “Page” at the top left of the screen.

Step Five)

Step Eight)

When you have finished click Publish to share your post.
