As of 04/22/24, Facebook removed the ability to add any 3rd party app (including PostMyParty) to Facebook groups.

However, PostMyParty has created a tool to allow users to continue to schedule posts to Facebook groups, regardless of this Facebook update: a workflow assistant, using a Chrome extension.

We understand there will be a lot of questions about using this tool! If you haven't already, please see our overview using the PostMyParty Chrome extension.

How do I install the Chrome extension?

Please see our full step-by-step tutorial here.

What devices can this be installed on and used with?

The extension can be installed to a computer (including laptops). This cannot be used with mobile devices like phones or tablets.

Can I install this on a different browser than Chrome?

No, the extension is only available with Google Chrome.

What if I don't have/use Google Chrome?

​The Google Chrome browser can be installed for free.
Here is where to download Google Chrome onto your computer.

Can I still post to...

  • Personal groups? Yes!

  • Business Page groups? Yes! See here for more about this.

  • Business Pages? Yes!

    Bonus: You now are able to post to Facebook events, as well as groups 🎉

Can I post as my business page name?

Yes! Please see the following article for more information:

How will I know it's ready to post?


The following conditions must be met at the time of your scheduled posts:

  • The computer must be on.

  • The Google Chrome browser must be open on your computer.

  • You must be logged into the Facebook account you want your posts published by.

  • The PostMyParty extension must be enabled.

Do I need to keep my computer on?

Yes. Using the extension is just as if you had a personal assistant publishing your posts for you at the time they're scheduled for, so it will need to remain on.

It is okay if it falls asleep or your screensaver pops up. It just cannot shut down.

Exception:

Use the Schedule button for times when keeping your computer on is not an option. This is not a required step, but an alternate solution.

Will I be able to use my templates?

Yes, using templates will still work the same way as before.

We do recommend being more careful about the spacing of your posts. We've found making sure there's at least 5 minutes between any post leaving your account is helpful in the extension having time to upload and publish your media, and is a good deterrent of Facebook not blocking your account for posting too fast!

Can I post to multiple parties at once?

Yes, just be mindful that you do not have more than 1 post scheduled at the same exact time.

We've found making sure there's at least 5 minutes between any post leaving your account is helpful in the extension having time to upload and publish your media, and is a good deterrent of Facebook not blocking your account for posting too fast!

Will there be an additional cost to use this?

No, the ability to use the Chrome extension is included with every PostMyParty subscription.

Can I use this on my phone?

You can still create, schedule, and manage your posts from your phone.

However, when it's time for the posts to publish you will need the extension. And the extension can only be installed to a computer or laptop.

*Note: The only exception to this is publishing directly to your business page. You can still post to Pages without using the extension.

Does this comply with Facebook's terms of service?

Yes! The extension is Google-approved, and hosted along their similar workflow assistants.

This has been legally reviewed, very thoroughly. Using it does not violate any Facebook terms, and does not access or collect data.

PostMyParty has been in good standing with Facebook since our start in 2015, and we would never put that - or our users! - at any sort of risk.

Please see here for more details about this.

Will using this get me flagged by Facebook?

By nature of Facebook, no one is ever able to guarantee your not being flagged.

However, using the Chrome extension does not put you at any higher risk than making these posts manually, or hand-scheduling them through Facebook.

Just as before, avoid having more than one post scheduled for the exact same time.​
