Changing The Date Of Your Post On Facebook Page

No one can bring back time, except if you can do quantum physics or if you have a time machine. However, Facebook platform had been doing this magic even before the introduction of Facebook Timeline. You can start changing the date of your post on Facebook page to update your Timeline more accurate than before.

Although this feature might not be useful for everyone who use Facebook, changing the date of your post on Facebook page can be a great feature to provide accurate timeline of activities. For example, you took a photo on a special event of your organization to post it on your Facebook page. However, you posted it a few days after that event. In order to fix this, you can change the date of your post and predate it back to the exact date of the event.

Facebook arranged posts on pages' Timeline in reverse chronological order. Thus, posts that have recent dates are the ones located at the top of the page. Changing the date of your post on Facebook page also assists page administrators and owners in organizing their Timeline.
