Best time for a Facebook post?

If you are using Facebook to spread the word about your business and want Friends to take action, Friday morning seems to be the time to post.

According to a new white paper from social media management company Vitrue, Friday Facebook posts produce 64% more shares, likes and comments than posts made on Sunday, the day of the week with the lowest engagement. Friday posts are also 13% more engaging than Saturday posts, 7% more engaging than Monday posts and 3% more engaging than Tuesday and Thursday posts.

Posts made in the morning (the first 12 hours of the day) get 65% more engagement than posts made in the afternoon, or second 12 hours of the day. It seems as though people check Facebook first thing in the morning before their day gets busy.
