Manage drafts (Legacy)

The legacy drafts system is set to retire. It has been replaced with our new personal and collaborative drafts (see Work with drafts). Go to Create new post to create your next post and save your future drafts from there.

Legacy drafts are private, single-use messages that you can find and edit in the Legacy Drafts folder. You cannot share these messages with others. Drafts can include images, videos, links, geo-tags or locations, targeting, and privacy options; and they can be scheduled.

Note: Drafts are single-use. They disappear from the list of Drafts once they are sent or scheduled.
