Real Life: Social Media Tips - When to Schedule Your Posts

Did you know that there is just the right time to post updates on social media?

Have you ever wondered why some folks go viral?
Wonder why some of your posts get more likes than others?
Are you puzzled how some people get retweeted by strangers?

It's all about timing... 

Let us explain.

If you’re trying to reach people, no matter who your audience is, make sure you schedule your posts just before or just after the hour.
Some experts like to break down the timing for each social media platform, but you can keep it simple with this general rule.
Why it works.
It is because that is the time, especially during business hours, when folks can check their social media. It is the time just before or just after a "meeting", which are generally scheduled at the top of hours.


Meeting is scheduled from 1-2 pm. Meeting lets out slightly early at 1:57 pm, and attendees check Twitter on the way back to their desk. Meeting goes a little long, and that dip into social media occurs at 2:03 pm.

And scheduling your tweets and posts are easy. Many social media applications (apps) let you schedule exactly what time of day you want a particular status update to go out to the world.

My favorite is Buffer App. What is your favorite social media app? Why? Let us know and we'll post it here!
