“What is the best time of day to post to social media sites?”
The answer to this question (and to so many other questions related to social media) is – IT DEPENDS.
With that said, my informal method for posting content is:
If the content requires reading, commenting, sharing and/or detailed attention, post in the morning (between 6 AM – 8 AM).
If the content is fun, light and/or requires less reading (infographics, photos, videos, polls), post in the early evening (between 5 PM – 7 PM).
If you are publishing a blog, Mondays and Thursdays are the best days to share it (according to HubSpot).
Neil Patel says that the absolute best time to post to Facebook is at noon on Saturday – that’s when your post will get the most shares.
Helpful hint: Try re-sharing popular content that you posted during the week.
