How can I schedule an FB post that is only a photo without any text?

When I try to schedule a Facebook post that contains only an image I get this message: "your message cannot be empty." This particular post is more of a poster with text on the photo and so I don't need to write a message for purposes of the post. Thanks.


  • Hello @USAIDTL2017,

    Thanks for reaching out via Forum! This is Miguel from the Hootsuite Support Team, happy to help.

    When publishing via Compose BETA, that message will appear, however, you can still send a photo without text for Facebook Pages, Profiles and Groups. Please disregard the message and try to schedule your post.

    I hope this helps!
