Best Times to Post to Social Media

Today I want to share something with you, which works very well (for me!) for some time now. I’ve done a lot of research on this and I think I’m now able to put the best possible results together here for you.

I’m talking about the best times to post on social media. That sounds a bit general, and it is, so please, just take this as a guideline, but not as a 100 percent truth. Depending on what content you share it may work differently for you, and there are certainly many other factors that relativize my results.

I suggest that you always consult your own experiences and your gut feeling before you follow my (or anyone else’s) advice, especially when it comes to something as complicated as the one being talked about here.

However, here are my suggestions (all times in 24h format):

Facebook

  • Any day
  • Between 13:00 an 15:00, 20:00

Twitter

Easy.

  • Go here: Followerwonk
  • Fill in your Twitter name, click “Do it”
  • Scroll a bit down to “Most active hours for users [your_twitter_name] follows”
  • Check the results, or even add those to a Buffer schedule automatically!
  • Done.

Instagram

  • Mondays, Thursdays
  • Between 8:00 and 9:00, 17:00

Google+

  • Weekdays only
  • Between 9:00 and 13:00

You can really skip weekends entirely.

Tumblr

  • All week, although weekends, especially Sundays, are stronger
  • Between 17:00 and 1:00 (next day)

Tumblr folks are active at nights!

LinkedIn

  • Weekdays only
  • Between 7:00 and 8:00, 12:00, between 17:00 and 18:00

That’s it. Make sure to leave at least 15 minutes between posts. Happy posting! 🙂

Facebook pushing pages to pay

Facebook is pushing page administrators to pay to promote every post/update from their page. In an attempt to make page administrators pay for “promoted posts” Facebook will now only let 7% of you receive each update I post. I simply cannot afford the hundreds of Euros I would need to spend on each post.

Meaning that now, in order to receive all Vogelmann related messages/posts, you must do the following:

1) Go to the Vogelmann Facebook page: facebook.com/ingovogelmann

2) Hover your mouse over where it says “LIKED” and click on “ADD TO INTERESTS LISTS” (perhaps make a “Vogelmann” or “Music” or “Producers/DJ’s” list).

By doing this, you will be able to see ALL of posts about Vogelmann in your news feed! I suggest you do this for all of the pages you want updates from.

Thank you very much for your ongoing love and support!
