Once you’ve boosted a post, it is very important to monitor how well your ad campaign is performing. If you need to make some modifications to the schedule or budget, you can easily make those changes directly from your Page timeline, page insight or Ads Manager.

From Your Page’s Timeline

Go to the boosted post on your page’s timeline and you’ll see an orange bar at the bottom. If you hover over the bar, you can see the total number of unique people who have seen your post, including the organic and paid reach.

Edit Text in a Boosted Post

Once a Page post has been boosted, you can’t edit the content without pausing or deleting the boost. But, you can pause the boost, edit the post (the text only, not the image), and then un-pause the post.

How To Pause a Boosted Post

  1. Select Boosted for at the bottom-right of the boosted post.
  2. Select Pause in the bottom-right corner of the window that appears. Select Pause to confirm. Your boost will then stop and the bottom-right of your post will say Boost Paused.

How To Edit The Post After You’ve Paused It

  1. Hover over your post.
  2. Select the drop-down in the top-right corner and select Edit Post.
  3. Edit your post and select Done Editing. Keep in mind that you can edit the text, but you won’t be able to change the image that you originally uploaded to the post.
