Posting on Facebook
How do I create a post on Facebook?
For this example I'm going to show you how to post an image or video to your Facebook page but the same steps can be followed to post any type of content!
Step 1 : Download an image or video that you want to post to your Facebook Page
Step 2 : From your Facebook page, click on "photo/video"
Step 3 : On your computer, locate the image or video you'd like to post and select it
Step 4 : Write some content related to the post - it doesn't have to be perfect and you can always edit it later if needed!
: Be sure to tag
any people or companies related your post by mentioning them using the "@" symbol
For instance : Astro Loyalty is "@astropetloyalty" on Facebook
