What Are The Best Times For A Business To Post On Social Media?

So the best time to post your tweets and Facebook updates, if your a business what are they? This is an interesting question and the best times can vary dependent on your desired audience.

Now nobody will be online 24 hours a day and you don’t want to annoy your audience by posting the same thing several times to cover all times in a day.

Discovering the best time to post an update is especially important on Twitter as tweets are coming in a continual stream so you want to have the best chance possible for your tweet to be noticed by your target audience. The way to discover the best times is trial and error, over several weeks post your updates on all of your social media platforms at several different times. Now the best times will vary between the different platforms so record the amount of engagement you get for each whether its Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Linkedin, or Pinterest, you can monitor the number of clicks you get from social media to your site by using a URL shortener such as ow.ly, bit.ly or goo.gl.

Now people have already done this research and I came across this excellent infographic from the guys at Social Caffeine which details the best and worst times to post on each of the most popular platforms. Now I suggest that you use this info as a guide and do your own research but this info is an excellent starting point.
