The best times to publish on Facebook, Twitter and send Emails

Hi Dan, how's it going?

So the scheduling of your posts is most optimal, you must pay special attention to the publication times, and it's for this reason that I am sharing with you the best time to publish on each social network,  based on the performance analysis of over 2 million users. 

  1. Facebook:
    - Saturday is the day of the week which gets the most participation.  
    - Thursday and Friday obtain 18% more participation than other days of the week.  
    - During the rest of the week, publishing outside of "business hours" (super early in the morning or late at night) will get you more engagement.  
  2. Twitter:
    - On Twitter participation also increases on Saturdays and Sundays.
    - And by following a similar behavior to Facebook, during the week, the best time to posts tweet is midday and after general working hours.
    - The most percentage of retweets happens around 5pm.   
  3. Sending emails:
    - Subscribers have to check email during the week after 12pm, and the most attractive time are between 2-5pm.
    - Tuesday and especially Thursday are the days which register a larger percentage of mailings and "open rate". 

You should keep in mind that this hours emerge from the analysis of all our users posts, which are from different sectors, therefore in your industry it can be the same or vary. But beyond this, I hope that this info helps you and you keep them in mind while scheduling your posts.  

Ah, and one more thing... in the table below you can see what the ideal frequency is for each social network, meaning, How often it's appropriate to share the same posts in times, days, weeks and months.
