How to Successfully Post to Multiple Facebook Groups

This article will be focusing on guiding you to successfully create and post to your groups. We’ll be taking the posting procedures one step at a time with screenshots so that even beginners can easily follow without stress.

We believe that you have successfully created a Pilot Poster account and you have done the necessary basic setups like adding a facebook account and also authenticated apps for sending posts.

Preparing Your account

The first step in making a post is to prepare your account first. Make sure your Timezone has been set to avoid having different time as the server. Set your Posting Settings, decide if you want only your open groups to display, set if you want your post and links to have Unique ids (Recommended). Read our article on preparing your account to fully understand it.

Preparing your Facebook Groups (Sorting Your Groups by Category)

It is recommended to sort your groups by category so you can easily know what to post to each category. This is not mandatory but if you want to achieve the best result in posting to multiple Facebook, then it is highly recommended.

Preparing your Post

Facebook have have four different post types, Message, Link, Image and Video. We have designed our system to be able to also post these four post types. In this article, we’ll be using the Link post type for demostration.

How to Post to Multiple Facebook Groups

Posting is done from the app homepage. So go to Home from the main menu

 1. Select your Groups: Scroll down from the home page and select the groups you wish to post. (If you have created a category, select the category  from the drop down).

2. Create your post: After selecting all the facebook groups you want to post, scroll up now to create your post. Select your post type (Message, Link, Image, Video). In this case we’ll be selecting Link.

Now fill the post boxes as shown in the screenshot above. A preview will be displayed in the right hand side of your screen to see how it’ll be displayed on facebook.

3. Posting/Scheduling: To post instantly, Simply set your post interval and click the send now button. Relax and watch your post being posted to the groups with the intervals set.

For Scheduling: To schedule posts for later time while you are away. You do NOT have to use the Send now option, instead, click on Scheduled Posts additional fields are opened automatically which you can fill like in the image below;

Note: You must Save a post first before before you can schedule and we recommend using iPhoto app for post scheduling.

To view your scheduled posts, go to Posts from the main menu and click on Scheduled Posts.

    Hi,
    Can the scheduling post running when the pc or we logout from it? Are the post still running?

    1. Pilot Poster

      You do NOT need to be online for your scheduled posts to run. All you need to do is set your schedule, and Pilot Poster will handle the rest.

      Thank you.

      1. Shah

        All right, thank you very much for fast response. I’m glad to hear that. BIG Applause for the TEAM for develop this kind of web based Auto Pilot poster.

    Hello there Pilot Poster!

    My images are not showing up when I post. I am using iPhoto & the app is set to public, all fields with “Photo” are checked, & the app is authenticated under my “Facebook Apps” here on pilot poster as well – am I missing something? Thank you!

  3. Andy

    I activated the iphoto app under friends instead of public and can’t go back to it. Can I reset or change it or does it matter?

    1. Pilot Poster

      Hello,

      1. Goto https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=applications (while your facebook account is logged in)

      2. Search for iPhoto (at the top right)

      3. Click on the iPhoto app

      4. Change App visibility and post audience to Public and save.

      You must change to make your post visible to all group members.

    When i schedule a post, in status it appears 0/62, but i am member of like 200 groups, why my post wont publish in the other 138 groups?

    1. Pilot Poster

      Hello, this could be because the other 138 groups are CLOSED groups and you have disabled closed groups from your settings.

      To display and post to all groups, Goto Settings > Posting Settings > Uncheck Show Open Groups Only.

      Thank you.

  5. Reid

    I joined some new groups but they’re not showing up on the home page in the list of groups. I would like to add them to a category. Why aren’t they showing up?

    1. Pilot Poster

      Hello, go to settings > Facebook Accounts > Update Facebook Account

  6. Please Help

    The post is not adding the picture to my posts. The picture is shown in the preview, but when it posts in the groups, it is a blank image.

    1. Pilot Poster

      To fix this problem, you have two ways;

      1. Use another App to Post to Facebook groups, we strongly recommend iPhoto.

      2. Ensure the app you are using has permission to post images to facebook. To do this;
      – Go to https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=applications
      – Search for the Pilot Poster app used for posting (e.g iPhoto)
      – Ensure the app is set to Public
      – Ensure all fields with Photo are checked. (You can use CTRL + F for quick search)

      Thank you.

  7. Hi i have problem posting the Ad. i did everything int he instructions. I have screen shots. but 1. my link didn’t show up properly 2. the image didn’t show up at all.

    Hi Pilot Poster,
    First – Thanks for an amazing product you have here! Secondly, I am having errors trying to get a token for iPhone and for Samsung Mobile BADA. Nothing comes up for the token once I have entered the URL from authentication. I have tried this on Internet Explorer and Firefox. How can I fix this issue? Reason is because my posts keep timing out and I am trying to change my app as you suggested above to another user. Thanks!

    Can’t add pics ( or maybe I just don’t know how LOL)…When I click add pic it takes me to the upload pics page…select one of the already uploaded pics and nothing happens…selected pic does not appear in the preview…Maybe i’m missing something..Certified Computer Dummy here…

    1. Don Avant

      Actually I just noticed that when I type in the name of one of my uploaded pics, a tiny square with a corner folded down appears in the
      grey pic area in the preview…Does this mean the pic is added?

      1. Pilot Poster

        Hello, this means your web browser isn’t displaying the preview properly. You can change your browser to see if this is fixed. The tiny square in most cases means that the image has been uploaded, so maybe you post to one of your groups and confirm if the image displays properly before posting to multiple groups.

  14. shiraz

    Hi,
    Can I close my browser even if the post is running in the Home page?

    1. Pilot Poster

      Hello, if you are posting instantly, the posting will stop when you close your browser.

      If you want to keep your posting running, use post schedule.

  15. Pilot Team is it possible to schedule posts every day on AUTOPILOT? For example lets say you schedule it on Jan 1 and it will post on Jan 2nd the same set time?

    1. Pilot Poster

      Yes you can. All you need to do is Schedule the post for the days you want to. For example, Wednesday 21st, Next Wednesday 28th

  16. Fraser Dalgleish

    Hi where can I save a photo online to copy the link for posting to groups? Or can I create a post on my Facebook business page with photos and then grab the link for that and post that multiple groups instead? I have refurbished phones I’m trying to promote for sale on multiple facebook groups but need to supply more than just 1 image per post ideally

    P.s. Sorry for double post I forgot to tick email notification box. Please delete other one. Thanks 🙂

    1. Pilot Poster

      Hello, you can save photos on sites like imgur.com, tinypic.com, postimage.org.

      You can also use the second option by posting to your facebook page first.

  17. Thank You Pilot Poster Team for creating this awesome FREE Auto Poster for Internet Marketers ! You deserve a Applause !

    1. Pilot Poster

      Hello, change the app you use for posting. We strongly recommend iPhoto for now because it’s token doesn’t expire.

      Simply send us the screenshot if the error persists.

  18. I am having issues with posting. It says:

    Error validating access token: Session has expired.

    Also, I cannot attach pictures.

    Please help so we can start posting.

  19. amin hafis

    got his error..why??

    (#200) Insufficient permission to post to target on behalf of the viewer

    1. Pilot Poster

      The group you are posting to does not allow members to post.

  20. Leamoure

    what should i do why every time i post in group this message will appear “It looks like you were misusing this feature by going too fast. You’ve been blocked from using it.” there something wrong!!!! thank you

    1. Pilot Poster

      It means you are posting to too many groups daily. Our recommended daily limit per facebook account is 200 groups. If you post to between 250 – 300 groups, facebook might ban you for some days from posting to groups. So I’ll advice you don’t post with that particular account for the next 24hrs. To avoid facebook jail.
