When is the best time to post on Facebook?

When it comes to posting on Facebook, one of the most important things is timing. This is the key to an amazing social media strategy.

With the constant change of Facebooks complicated News Feed algorithm, Moola Marketing know getting your timing right isn’t easy. But through trial and error with our own social media management the Moola Marketing team have discovered publishing times that show higher levels of likes, comments, shares and click-throughs.

But when is the best time to post on Facebook?

During the week (Monday to Friday) the best time to post on Facebook is between 12pm and 3pm.

What about weekends you ask … between 12pm and 1pm.

However, these times will vary slightly from business to business depending on your customers.

We still advise that you keep in mind your customers, after all we all have different schedules. If you sell your service mainly in the US then a post will be less effective being posted at 1pm GMT. Just like if your main users are University students an evening post may gain the better engagement compared to a mid-morning post.

What about the best day?

Coschedule found that Thursdays – Sundays get the most engagement especially when paired with a posting time of 1pm. At least for B2C brands, if you are a B2B brand they suggest putting your hardest hitting content up on a weekday.

Well what is the least favourable day to post? Hootsuite suggest that Tuesdays lag behind for engagement, however this doesn’t mean you should completely ignore Tuesdays.
