    Nice tutorial, and scheduling is indeed a great idea, it save a lot of time and energy. Wanted to add there are even better ways to do the scheduling, try for example Mass Planner, you can schedule on Facebook groups, pages and your wall, on Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram and it’s super easy to use.
