If you see your Instagram account as a necessary evil to promote your work, you’ll be happy with its latest feature. From now on, owners of Professional accounts will finally be able to schedule posts. In other words, you’ll no longer need to use Meta’s Creator Studio or third-party services, but the scheduling feature will be built in right there in the app.
Scheduling Instagram posts has been the feature millions of users wanted to see. Well, you asked for it, and here it is – Instagram is finally allowing post scheduling. The feature is already unrolled for business users, but those of you who have personal accounts will have to wait some more until it’s available for everyone.
After writing about how I use Later.com to schedule Instagram posts, a reader suggested PIXBUF as an alternative that can schedule photography posts across all popular social media accounts from one app.
Facebook, Twitter, 500px, Flickr, Tumblr, Pinterest, Blogger and Instagram are currently supported with VSCO, Behance and Google + promised in the future.
PIXBUF is currently free and sounds pretty awesome, so I thought that I’d try it out – continue reading for my thoughts.
