Creating a Facebook Carousel post allows you to showcase more content. With more creative space, you can highlight different products, showcase specific details, or tell a story about your brand.

Create your posts from scratch, or use our templates. When your content is ready, here's how to create, schedule, and publish your Facebook Carousel.

When creating a Facebook Carousel, there are 2 (two) ways to publish. A Carousel composed of images and videos, and one of links. Here's how to create and publish each type.

Creating and publishing a media Carousel

Here, you can populate your post with up to 10 images or videos, and publish them with one common caption and hashtags.

1 - On the Social Calendar, select your Facebook account and click New Post to start a new Facebook Carousel post.

2 - Click on the '+' icon to add Media, or click the Robot (AI Assistant) and Camera (Create post image) icons to create your post content from scratch.

3 - Once you're done creating your post, click 'Schedule' or the dropdown arrow to schedule, add your post to queue or publish it directly.

Creating and publishing a link Carousel

This type of carousel post allows you to showcase your brand’s uniqueness and tell a story. It's versatile and can be used in a number of ways: promote products and blog articles, show how to use your product or highlight a service you're offering, and so much more.

Each item from you carousel will be create from a link you add, and they can be customized to have its own caption, subtext, and image. Keep in mind that each link equals 1 (one) item on your carousel. Here's how to do it.

1 - On the Social Calendar, select your Facebook account and click New Post to start a new Facebook Carousel post.

2 - Add the links to your carousel items on the text portion of the post editor. Each link = 1 item on the carousel. You can add a minimum of 2 links, and up to 5.

3 - To add the next link/item click 'Add next link'.

4 - To customize each item of your Carousel:

  • Note: when you change the link, the content will change (featured image, title, text), so be sure to replace links first and then customize the rest of your content, following the steps bellow.

  • to change item link, click the edit icon on the right side of each item link, paste the link you want to be featured, then click 'Save'.

  • to customize item text, click the title and edit it:

    • uploading your own image

    • selecting a different image

When you're done, you can preview your post by clicking the preview post (eye icon) at the bottom of the post editor.

Note: If you prefer, you can erase the link you initially added in the caption section of the post editor.
