What are the best times to post on each social media?

 This again is dependent on the brand and the audiences that they attract. Firstly, we’d recommend checking your data to see when your audiences are primarily interacting with your posts. If there is no clear evidence on when your audiences are connecting consistently with your content, then we would recommend posting at a variety of times throughout the day, during business hours. Keep in mind when people are most likely looking at social media, on their lunch breaks, after dinner etc. and post around that.
