Best Times To Post On Social Media

best times to post on social media

Research shows there are best times to post on social media.

It is worth bearing in mind that these times may change, depending on the year and trends. As user groups age and platforms evolve, the best times to get engagement change too.

These are a rough guide. You should certainly use analytics or insights on each platform to see when you are getting the most engagement. A lot of it will depend on your target audience. If you are marketing at parents, you are unlikely to get much engagement if you post between the hours of 6pm and 8pm because that is when most people are putting the kids to bed.

Similarly if you are trying to reach business owners, you are unlikely to get much engagement in office hours. Try posting during commuting hours or early in the morning.

Here are the best times of day, statistically speaking, to post on each platform.

Facebook – Wednesday 11am, Wednesday 1-2pm

Instagram – Wednesday 11am, Friday 10-11am

Twitter – Wednesday 9am, Friday 9am

Pinterest – Saturday 8-11pm

LinkedIn – Wednesday 8-10am, Friday 9am
