Those who are keen to post links to Facebook have a dilemma: unless these links are spaced out at a rate of one every twenty minutes, they will be buried in a “similar posts” container and forgotten about.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could post all of the links you want at once time, and have some automated tool serve them for you at 20 minute increments?
Enter Staggr, a free web service and Facebook app that does exactly this.
Staggr can be added to your browser in the form of a bookmarklet, which can be used to post any page that you are browsing by a single click.
Staggr will take things over from there, keeping a list of all the links that you wanted to post, posting them on Facebook fro you in 20 minute intervals. You can do this from your browser or on your Android device via an Android app.
How to use Staggr:
- Add Staggr to Facebook and give the app the ability to post on your behalf
- Drag the Staggr bookmarklet to your browser’s ‘bookmarks’ toolbar.
- Browse to the pages you want to post, and click on the Staggr bookmarklet to schedule them
- Optionally add a comment, and choose whether you want to your own timeline or that of any Facebook page(s) associated with your account.
- Bask in the appreciation of your Facebook friends and community for your artfully curated updates!
This tool is not for everyone, but those who need it will doubtlessly appreciate it. It would have been nice to be able to schedule updates at other increments aside from 20 minutes (e.g. every hour or something), or at user-specified times. On the other hand, if you like to keep things simple and to the point, that’s what you will get with this service.
