Facebook tests a 'Preview' feature for Page Posts

According to Ahmed Ghanem and Matt Navarra, Facebook is working on a new feature which allows page admins to Preview their post before sharing it publicly (just like Facebook ad preview feature, which appears while boosting a post).

A new Preview button — which will be right next to Share Now button — is in test mode for Page posts which will enable you to see how your post will look like before you share it.

When pressed, a new preview window will pop up which will show you exactly how your post will appear after sharing it, in both desktop or mobile format.

This feature will be highly valuable for the social media managers as it would allow them to manage the posts in a better way.

If used for every post, you'll be able to find errors and format mistakes before they go live.

Although you can still do this with the help of the existing Facebook Page publishing tools - when you schedule your post, you can see it in the scheduled list and have an idea, about how it's going to look like to your page audience.


But if in case, you are publishing the post live, you'll frequently skip this step.

This new feature will keep you aware of how your posts will look like in all situations.

At the moment, there is no confirm news from Facebook about when this feature will roll-out, but it will be useful for the Facebook page admins when released.
