Flowbox supports Facebook post creation, customization and publishing. This article covers all of the Flowbox features available for creating and publishing Facebook posts.

  • Continue by adding your preferred caption to the 'Caption' textbox and notes to 'Notes'.
  • When you're done, click on the blue 'Next' button.

7. Tab: 'Targeting'

  • Choose the target group of the post in Facebook News Feed by selecting minimum age, maximum age, and gender in the three dropdown menus.
