What’s the best time to post? It depends.

A post over on the Buffer blog runs through a lot of good data that’s been collected on timing of posts to blogs and social media. There are conflicting data, and optimal times vary with specific audiences, but a few clear recommendations do emerge:

  • Thursdays are great all around.
  • B2C (Business to Consumer) Twitter posts garner more engagement on weekends.
  • E-mail stats vary widely according to niche.
  • Blog posts are shared the least on Sundays and Tuesdays.
  • Posting to Facebook anytime after dinner and before work is a long shot.
