The Best & Worst Times to Post on Social Networks

11 June 2012

Mashable has reported on stats from link shortening service that reveal best and worst times to post on Twitter and Facebook to get the most interaction from your networks:

The company revealed that posting links to Twitter between the hours of 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. ET (or 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. PT) will give you the highest click rank, especially on days earlier in the week. Meanwhile, sending a tweet with a link after 8:00 p.m. should be avoided — as should posting links after 3:00 p.m. on Fridays.

Facebook's optimal posting times vary - publish your links between  1:00 and 4:00 p.m.; Wednesday at 3:00 p.m. is the peak best time for posting. In general, you should avoid posting important links on weekends.
