However, instead of posting for a future date, your post will be nestled in your Timeline at the past date of your choosing.
My concerns for this feature are for the ways it may be used.
Last month, Facebook announced a couple of new features for Facebook Page admins on the Timeline.
First, they announced the long awaited “Save Drafts,” which allows you to plan a post within the Timeline and save it to finish later.
Backdating allows executives to choose a past date when the market price was particularly low, thereby inflating the value of the options.
An example illustrates the potential benefit of backdating to the recipient.
This is a legitimate instance where you may want to use post backdating.
You can manually compare every post on your site with the date it was originally posted, assuming you have access to that information.
You can write and upload a dozen posts all at once, and set them to appear at set, reasonable intervals. Sometimes, you have no choice but to make a drastic site move.The reasoning behind this is unclear, but my guess is that Facebook is serious about letting users have their time capsules and life events heavily documented via timelines, thus allowing you to post in the past.On the other side of the spectrum, Facebook post scheduling allows you to create a status that is posted at a future date.You can then edit the post date to maintain consistency from one site to another.Of course, these days a site migration generally includes post dates, unless you’re doing a drastic move from one blogging platform to another and your only backup doesn’t work with the new software.
