It will depend on your audience, and how far-flung it's spread around the globe.

If you target a local audience, no problem — you're audience will mostly receive your message around the same time of day. But if you target an international audience, it will vary enormously.

The most useful solution is to use automated posting software that will post your messages (on social networks or email,etc) at specified times, with instructions for delayed posting according to different time zones.

There's an awful lot of opinion amongst internet marketers about what times of day and which days of the week product the best results. I recommend testing your own audience — and keep tracking those post openings.

Hi John Bolton,

I have run a facebook page for an International Organization but generally we found 4pmish during the week and on weekends the best times for Facebook.

Each Social Media property has their own "ideal" times but as MarketingDoctor says...try various posts of similar type (i.e. all with images or videos) and see.

Different posts and time of season will impact the "engagement" you achieve.

Good luck

Paul Woodall

Depends on your friends.
If you have many "student friend" then about 10 pm is maybe the best time.
If your friends are corporate officer or something then about 4 pm is the best time and so on.
Overall evening time is best to post status.

It depends on your audience, particularly on their time zone. People are online most around 6-10 p.m. of the local time.

First, study your audience behavior like at what time they are active on Facebook and know what is their interest in your related field. This will give you an idea on posting interesting and engaging content for your targeted users.

Wow, Joe, the information you post is impressive.
No doubt, that infographic is the best way of giving complex data.
