3.  The check-box for Don't display the post will create an Unpublished Page Post. This box is checked by default.

This is a 'dark' post that will not appear on your Facebook page. When unchecked, you will create an organic post, otherwise known as a Published Post.


4.  The check-box for Post targeting/scheduling is a filter that allows you to select the language and country where your post will be displayed. This filter is on top of the published/unpublished filter. 


5.  The check-box for Schedule this post means that your post will be unpublished until a specified time, at which time it will be published to your Facebook page. 


6. Fill in all fields and click on the Publish button to save your post.
