        You may create and prepare your post here.

        Now, select the clock-like icon with the name "Share Now" and click "Schedule" in the dropdown.

        Under Publication, you will see a "Select the date and time" option, from here; you can schedule this post according to you. Facebook can also suggest a suitable time to post.

Often, your scheduled posts need to be edited because of changing news and events. This is a common and day-to-day problem, which is understood by Facebook. And it, therefore, has provided solutions via Publishing Tools, wherein, you get to access the Facebook post scheduler.

        Open Facebook and move to your page.

        In the left column, find Publishing Tools to click on it.

        Now select Scheduled Posts

        Here, you will be able to access your already scheduled posts. Select the post you wish to edit.

        To reschedule or delete your post, open Actions. And the three dots (…) below Actions will allow you to edit the wording, images, and details of the scheduled posts.

Unfortunately, you can only reschedule or remove the post on the mobile app. Unlike the Facebook post scheduler on desktop, that allows you to edit the wording or content of the post.
