I want to be able to schedule a message with a video so that my friend/relative can receive it in a similar fashion to a greeting card.

I know it is possible to schedule wall posts, fan page updates and Twitter (which can update Facebook). Is it possible to schedule a Facebook message with a video (or at least a picture) ? If yes how ? If no, what are the possible reasons and steps to try to make it possible ?

Well here is a method that was not available when you had asked this question:

Step 1: Create a Facebook email id.

Step 2: Go to Gmail>Settings>Accounts and Imports; in the Send Mail As section, add the Facebook email Id.

Step 3: Download and Install the Boomerang For GMail Google Crome Extension from www.boomeranggmail.com

Step 4: Schedule a message to be sent from your GMail account in the name of the Facebook account to your family members (they should have signed up for facebook email too).

Hope that would help.

Here's a good one for you - "Message In a Bottle".


It should be exactly what you're looking for, essentially a "time capsule" application that allows you to send messages in the future - far into the future, too.

I can't recall if it delivers the message immediately, showing the subject, but protecting the contents, but hopefully it's what you had in mind. You can try sending a message to yourself first.
