If you ever felt annoyed by the lack of attention a friend is paying you on Facebook, take into consideration that they might have a valid reason for it. The same goes for phone calls and texts.
Receiving alerts in the middle of the night from a friend living across the globe can become extremely annoying. However there is an easy fix for alerts in the middle of the night: turning off your phone or leaving it in a different room. Let’s review some of the best and the worst moments to post on a social network. This will probably help you get the comments and likes you are searching for.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO POST ON SOCIAL MEDIA:
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO POST ON FACEBOOK
The first thing you need to know is that there are different times to post depending on the platform and audience. For instance, Facebook has the highest traffic between 9 AM and 4 PM. Additionally, starting with 1PM you have a window of 3 hours as the best time to post. Unless your friends live in a different timezone, posting anything after 8PM and before 8AM, is the worst idea. Many people use their evenings to go out instead of spending time on Facebook, especially during weekends.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO POST ON PINTEREST
If you use social site Pinterest more than Facebook, not only there is a perfect hour window to post, but a really good day of the week as well. Your pins will reach more people in a shorter time if you use this platform on Saturday between 2PM to 4PM ET and from 8PM to 1PM ET. Right before dinner, between 5 and 7PM seems the worst time to use Pinterest.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO POST ON TWITTER
Twitter users peak between Monday and Thursday starting at 11AM. Researchers show that tweets posted from 1PM till 3PM are the most successful. You should stay away from Twitter after 8PM till 9AM. As you can see, Twitter has similar patterns to Facebook.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO POST ON GOOGLE+
Google+ seems to have a different activity window. It seems its users are most active during the morning working hours, 9-11AM. It seems that almost nobody is interested in this platform after 6PM.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO POST ON LINKEDIN
Finally, business website LinkedIn has the earliest hours as the best time to post. Starting with 7AM till 9AM this social network sees a lot of activity. A brief window from 5 to 6 in the evening is another popular time to post. Don’t think about posting anything after 10PM till 6 AM because those updates will most likely go ignored.
These are the most popular social networks used in the Western countries. Countries like China or Japan developed other platforms. You will have to learn when are those platform used the most, depending on the targeted audience. Depending on what you post you might want to attract the attention of those who are better known in the field. Posting at similar hours they do, increases your chances.
