There’s always a lot of discussion and debate as to what the best time to post content on your social networks is.
Shareaholic studied their metrics for the 2011 year, and came up with some pretty exact results. Thursdays between 8 a.m. and noon is the best time to post material you want shared on social networks. Page views are better on Mondays.
Traffic generally slows down around 9 a.m. but spikes again after 9 p.m. The before work and after work hours are the strongest.
This should give businesses and marketers a pretty good idea of when to post information. The more you can work in the off hours, the better.
The quality of the content still matters considerably. If you can post good content at the right time, that’s your best combination.
