Best time to post on Facebook

[ezcol_2third]

Those clever people over at QuickSprout have been crunching numbers to work out the best times to post on various social networks for the most views and engagement. They have put together this very useful Best Times To Post infographic.

And it’s great. But it’s not actually very handy.

Too Long…

So, I’ve summarised it below:

Facebook

Thursday & Friday, 1pm for shares, 3pm for clicks

Twitter

For a business audience, Monday to Friday, 5pm for retweets, 12pm or 6pm for clicks

For consumers, Wednesday, Saturday & Sunday, same times

LinkedIn

Tuesdays, 10am to 11am

Pinterest

Saturday, 8pm – 11pm

Surely you’ve got better things to do at that time on a Saturday?

Instagram

Monday, outside of work hours

Google+

Monday to Friday, 9am-11am

 

Better? What, you want more?

I’ve created this handy little print and keep timetable. Pop it on your desk, rest your coffee cup on it and remind yourself when it’s best to post where.

Does it have to be so complicated?

No, this is just a useful way of optimising your posts, especially if you are using a tool to schedule them.

If you’ve not reached that point in┬áthe way you deal with your social media accounts, don’t panic. Post when you’re ready, when it’s convenient, when you’re inspired and when you feel like it.

You may not be posting at the exact best time, but it’s better than not posting at all.

 

Thanks, QuickSprout!
