best times social media

Reference guide to when to post on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest or LinkedIn for the most views and clicks

If you manage your own social media accounts for your business, you are most likely struggling for the best results. With so many accounts to manage – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn – it can be a challenge to keep up with frequent posts…. let alone optimize the posts.

And if you are looking for real results (people actually reading your posts, liking, clicking on links or sharing) then the best time to post is not “when I have a few free minutes” or “when I see something interesting cross my news feed to share”.

You want to make sure you are posting when the core audience is more likely to take action (the day & time that is best for them!). And the real tricky part is that it varies by social media site – and even by B2B or B2C audiences on each social media site.

The below infographic takes a deep dive into each major social media site offering details on when and why you should post on certain days or time of day for best results. It’s a big infographic packed with a lot of information, so I also put together the below chart as a quick reference.

Tip: to help you manage posting times better, take advantage of “scheduled posts” on sites like Facebook, or get even better control with a social media management tool like HooteSuite to schedule posts by site to post content at the best days and times.

See the full infographic below (courtesy of QuickSprout) for more details about why these days and times will produce the best results by social media site.
