What Are the Best Days and Times to Post on Facebook?

Best days to post on FacebookI know this is a question many people have on their minds, including myself. That’s why I was thrilled to read this awesome Infographic posted by Bill Ross at the digital agency LinchpinSEO.

This cool infographic breaks down the best days to post by 15 different industries from Advertising & Consulting to Travel & Leisure. For instance, did you know that if you’re in:

  • Advertising & Consulting: It’s a “weekend world?” Posts on Saturdays & Sundays receive 69% higher interaction.
  • Health & Beauty: Sundays & Mondays are your best days? Posts on those days receive 11 to 12% higher interaction.
  • Travel & Leisure: if you post on Sundays you’ll see 19% higher interaction?

What industry are you in? Take a peek below and see which days are best for you.

Best time of day to post on Facebook: One of the interesting facts stated on the bottom of the Infographic reveals that posts published between 8:00pm and 7:00am receive 14% higher interaction than those posted between 8:00am and 7:00pm.

    • It is interesting isn’t it @Cairn? So what day(s) works best for your biz?
      @Jacqueline, looks like weekends are the best days for my biz too. Most often, if I’m on Facebook during the weekend, it’s on my personal profile vs. my Fan Page. Guess I need to revisit that.
      Thanks to both of you for sharing your thoughts here. ~Debra

  3. great infographic!
    It seems that we do get asked that question a lot. 🙂

    • Glad you like the infographic @Denys. It was cool to find it and even more interesting to read the stats about the various industries and days that work best for each.
      I try to take a break on weekends, but it appears in my business that’s the time people are interacting most. ~Debra

  4. Wow! Great information.. Many thanks for sharing.

  9. Fascinating factoids, Debra! Have shared on Twitter and FB. I often felt that weekends are great “catch up” days on Facebook, and this article confirms my suspicion.

    • Hi Lynn, I often try to take the weekends off from work, away from my computer. While I suspected many people are online (on Facebook) during the weekend, I assumed they were busy messaging their friends & family vs. checking out business Fan Pages. However, this infographic suggests that many are online – personally & professionally – during the weekend so I’m reconsidering my tactics for sure. Thanks. ~Debra

  10. I love infographics! It’s interesting to see the differences in the industries, but I am slightly bummed that LinchpinSEO left out a huge industry in this country such as “Services” (or Home Services) under which my company falls.
    Dana Ward recently posted…Understanding Man-Hours In MovingMy Profile

    • Dana, I took another look at the industries covered to see if anything comes close to yours. You’re right, “professional services” or “home services” would be a good category to explore. What’s been your experience so far? Do you notice a difference when you post during the week vs. weekends? I’m guessing, in your industry, people may be checking into home services during the weekend when they have more free time.
      Thanks. ~Debra
