3. Time it Right

Did you know that certain subjects are more widely shared on certain days of the week? Pay attention to what you share and which day you want to share it on. Also pay attention to the time of day you share posts. Depending on your audience there are different peak times to share your content.

Working Class: 8am-11am & 11pm-2am

Best time to post is at the beginning of the work day and later at night while everyone is relaxing before hitting the hay.

Moms: 11am-2pm

This is the time that most kids are put down for their daily naps, so mom has some time to spend on social media.

Younger Kids/Teens: After school and during school breaks

Frequency is very important also, especially for Facebook. Don’t post to Facebook as frequently as you would on Twitter, but try to post more than once a day. Each page requires it’s own unique balance depending on the target audience. According to the article by PropelAd, 3 posts per day is the golden number for Facebook. Posting more than 3 times per day annoys most people, and posting less can leave them bored.
