What are the best times to post updates to social media? (infographic)


Ever wondered when the best time is to post that selfie with the Tiddles the cat, or to the update Instagram with a photo of your cheese toastie? Well this infographic about the best times to post updates to social media can help.

Joking aside, you’ll probably find that the bulk of your followers on social media will be online and checking their feeds at certain times and it’s best to share your content when they are around to see it. Facebook is best when posting on a Thursday or Friday when for some work can be winding down for the week and people are arranging their weekend activities via social media. Best times to Tweet? 12pm, 5pm and 6pm apparently, with users being 181% more likely to be on Twitter during their commute.
Pinterest seems very different to all the other platforms with best pinning day being Saturday and best time of the day 8pm – 11pm.
