It is important to note that the following statistics represent an average of the best posting times. To truly determine the best time to post on social media, you should examine your analytics and track what works best for a particular audience.

This will be a theme with many of the different social platforms we’re highlighting today. This suggests that people often check their social accounts when they want a quick break from work or to get a quick distraction.

This means you have many different ways you can try to engage your audience, and many opportunities to post at different times. Best day and time to Post Wednesday at 11 am, and Friday at 10-11 am
