The best times to post on SM

Best times to post on different social media platforms

Social media has become a global phenomenon that has made millions and millions of people worldwide to be engrossed in its use, but for a social media page to be a booming success especially in the world of entrepreneurship; one has to exhaust all the efforts to keep your audience. In this blog post, we will take a look at the best times to post on different social media platforms. The best times to post on SM

Facebook changed its news feed algorithm early last year to prioritize meaningful interactions from friends, colleagues, family connections. So content that drives genuine engagement is your best bet. The reason for the new feed algorithm is to make sure you’re posting at the right time. 

Here are the best times to post on Facebook 2019

  • Wednesday at 11 am and 1 pm is the best times to post on Facebook.
  • Best day: Wednesday is also the best day to post on Facebook.
  • Weekdays from 9 am to 3 pm is the most consistent engagement time to post on Facebook
  • Sunday has the least amount of engagement for Facebook during the week.
  • Early mornings and evenings, before 7 am and after 5 pm have the least amount of engagement per day.

Best times to post on Instagram 

Instagram has become more and more important to brands, so here are the best times to post on Instagram. I hope they work just as great for you, as they did for others too! 

  • Monday: 7pm and 10 pmThe best times to post on SM
  • Tuesday: 3 am to 10pm
  • Wednesday: 5pm 
  • Thursday : 7am and 11 pm
  • Friday: 1 am and 8 pm
  • Saturday: 12 am and 2 am
  • Sunday: 5 pm

In addition to that, stats showed that the highest concentration of Instagram audience is on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The least attention is usually on Mondays because it is the first day after the weekend and people are usually busy setting themselves for the remaining week or completing some pending work. 


Twitter presents a huge opportunity for businesses to connect directly with their audiences and manage customer care. This means how important time is on Twitter.  In short, Timeliness is key on Twitter.  While the social media network selectively highlights some activity out of chronological sequence based on user interest, most people are still interested to catch up on the latest posts and musings from their group of followed accounts. So, posting at the wrong hours could and cause you to miss out on a lot of your potential engagement.

So here are the best times to post on Twitter

  • The Best Times To Post On Twitter Is Between 9am And 4Pm On Monday Or Thursday. 
  • Tuesdays And Wednesdays Are The Best Days To Post During The Week. 
  • Friday: From 8 Am To 4pm Which Is Most Consistent Engagement. While Saturday Gets The Least Engagement.

How to create scheduled posts in your facebook business page

Scheduling posts is a great way to get organised, you can schedule things in months ahead or keep copying and pasting the same post so it pops up every Monday, Tuesday or which ever day.  So I’m going to show you how to do this step by step with a couple of pictures to make it easy for those that are unsure, are rather time poor or simply don’t have patients to sit there and figure it out, which is normally my case.

People use this to create a marketing campaign for a new product, service or event they are about to release, or they just want to put in something up for Christmas, Easter or The Queens birthday without even touching a computer or phone to create a post that day.

Scheduling posts in when you are inspired to sit down for a few hours and punch in heaps of posts may give you time to schedule in “social media free days”, unless of course you’re posting something where you have to respond straight away.

How to create a scheduled post on your facebook business page:

2. More > Publishing tools.

  1. Login and go to your business page.
  2. Select “Publishing tools” along the top bar, you may need to select the “MORE” down button to get to this.
  3. In the grey column on the left select “Scheduled Posts”, in the future you will be able to see every post you have created, you can also go back in and edit them at any time before they are published.
  4. Select the Blue button saying “Create Post”.
  5. Write content as you would normally, add pictures or a link as you desire.
  6. Ensure you have News Feed selected.
  7. Optional – select Instagram also if you have an account and if it’s a compatible post.
  8. Click the big blue “Schedule Post” to go through to schedule arrangements.

    9.  Select the date and time you would like it to be published.

  9. Select the date and the time you would like it to be published, be careful of the time zone, incase you haven’t fixed this it’s in your “settings”.
  10. This will save, the box will then disappear. Refresh the page.
  11. Select the “Scheduled Posts” in the grey left column, the last post you created should be at the top.
  12. Back to step 4, schedule in another post.


So now you have the tools in place to schedule posts so you can book in time in your diary for a social media free day, spend time the loved ones, go for a swim or get your nails done.  I once scheduled in 20 posts using my phone while getting my hair done, save yourself some more time by doing 2 things at once, because we know we can.


You’re welcome.
