I need to post number of photos (hundreds) with text on my Facebook Page and schedule them to appear in given hours or alternatively in selected intervals (i.e. every 3-4 hours).

While Hootsuite supports bulk scheduling of statuses or page links via CSV file, there is currently no option to schedule photo uploads.

The only service I found is Post Planner, which according to description does support this, however only in $29/month (or higher) plan.

Is there any free (or cheaper) way to do this, whether it is service or software?

Give Buffer a try: bufferapp.com

They offer a free limited version and the unlimited goes for only $10 a month.

You can schedule posts for FB, Twitter and Linkedin and send them at determined times. Plus have a nice bookmarklet for easy snipping.

Hopefuly that helps.

Thank you. I didn’t even think of this way but it it actually solves event more than I asked for. Before I used to download bulk photos and re-upload them for scheduled updates. Now I just add them to the buffer right from the web with one click (in combination with IFTTT). Thanks for solving my problem. –  Maroš Žofčin Sep 3 '13 at 17:36
    
With bufferapp you will only be able to schedule ONE photo at a time but the whole album... if it so, facebook itself can do too. –  user54451 Dec 5 '13 at 10:23

I just used graph API in a powershell script for fun http://www.sharepoint.asia/how-to-post-on-all-of-your-groups-using-powershell/ This powershell picks up a url from target site's sitemap and post it on random Groups you are part of ( including own wall) .

Answers are best when they are self-contained. Without the link there is no useful information here. Please include the essential information in the answer here and use the link to credit the source and, if necessary, offer further information. –  Al E. Apr 26 at 14:15

What information was misleading or what was not working ? Had you tried following the steps ? Were you successful in scheduling a post ? I am sure not , or you would not had written this –  Danyal May 1 at 19:16
    
If the links don't work, there's nothing of value here. I shouldn't need to go to another site to get any useful information. See, for instance, this: Your answer is in another castle: when is an answer not an answer? –  Al E. May 1 at 22:48
    
@AlE. is correct, you need to at least summarize the methods in the answer itself, else it will be deleted. –  jonsca May 1 at 22:54
    
Worse, these are links to what appears to be your own blog. The community does not tend to like such self-serving. –  Al E. May 1 at 22:56
