Knowing the best times to post on social media will do you and your brand a lot of good. The main objective of creating content is to reach your target audience. But what is the whole point if most of your target audience are not online?

There is already a lot of noise on social media because different brands are also trying to get attention and generate engagement. Understanding the best time to post on social media will most likely improve your results.

Sprout Social has released a report on the best time to post on social media in 2020. This report is based on monitoring its over 20,000 customer base so you will find it useful in your own social media marketing strategy.

You should, however, note that the report by Sprout Social is a general insight. You may need to also study what works for you and maybe stick to it. But if you have not been paying attention to best posting times before now, this may be a good place to start.

According to the chart above, the best time to post on Facebook is on Wednesday, 11 am and 1-2 pm. (CST). Thursday and Friday are not bad too, especially late morning and midday time. The worst day, however, is Sunday. Saturday is also like it, although not as worse. So you may want to think twice about making important posts on Facebook during the weekend.
