Are you hoping for a purchase or a reaction?  The experts us trial and error, tracking results using an analytics tool. I often use Hootsuite's auto-scheduling feature.  But whatever your social media posting plan, this chart offers some clues to guide your efforts.

  1. As someone that tries to time his posts for maximum engagement on Twitter and Facebook, I can definitely vouch for the twitter analysis up here. Anything posted after 8 p.m. and before 9 a.m. is as good as lost UNLESS the tweet has a hashtag that people are trying to track.

  2. Totally disagree with the FB times – Our Fan page page has a great reaction over the weekend and we also do an 8.30am post, which always gets us a great deal of likes compared to other times. Our 1pm-4pm posts lag likes and chat.
    Sunday is our key day to post – People have more time chat. It will vary depending on the style of page you have and the type of fans you have.
