    Definately daily. Personally, I post once in the morning around 9am then around lunch 12-1pm and then once in the evening around 6-7pm
    But honestly, you might have better engagement at different times. You also have to keep in mind that the US covers like 4 different time zone and if you have a worldwide audience then the time is even more screwed up. I would recommend to do some split testing with Hootsuite and determine the best times to post through trial and error.

    At least for Facebook, that answer depends on when your target is online. If your targets are online from 8 - 4, you post between 8 and 4. If they are online at midnight, you post at midnight. What do your facebook insights tell you?

    The frequency of social media posting should be made in such a way that your targeted audience can get the maximum benefit of the posts or links shared. A daily promotion is always a good idea, but spamming around the whole day would be a bad notion. So it will be better to schedule posts for the day using third party services so that your audiences are heard at the right time from your profile pages.

    Check your targeted traffic peak, and from which country it is.

    Usually in the morning and after 5 PM is a good time to post.

    Those times will be different for everyone, depending on your particular following.

    For myself, I have found that posting daily at 7:15 am, 11:30 am, and 8:00 pm gives me maximum reach.

    I post content daily. And the hours depend on who you want to target, but I post stuff usually in the morning and then around 4PM.

    From my experience there are 3 times in a day when it's best for posting.

    9am but no later than 10am
    2pm
    8 to 9pm

    Depending on your product/service, you can figure out which of these would work best.

    Good question. Everyday post is better for getting attention. You could use statistic for checking your post and when it is most popular among your audience.

    I used to think the best times were 9am, 12-1pm, and 3pm. Until I marketed to teachers, who surf in the evening after they're done. So, the lesson was it depends on your audience.

    Are they office workers sneaking a quick Facebook check during the afternoon lull? Do they do a quick social catch-up at 7am with their cup of coffee? Are they night owls? What time zone are they in?

    Timing is imprtant
    i think best time is when they are free to use their mobiles and laptops. also in the evening.
    facebook page will show you the majority of your audience when they are online and offline. so you post and check your google analytics to know when did you have the majority of visits. posting in the evening seems good. everyone is free

    In my experiences:

    1. When people go to work
    2. When people go home after work
    3. During lunch
    4. Before they go to sleep

    In short, when their mind is relaxed, free, not distracted by work. Here in Jakarta, traffic jam is common, especially during point 1 and 2. That's when most people check their social media from their smartphones, which is also one of the best times to post something

    Please note, this is based on my own experiences and doesn't necessarily apply to all conditions.

    Exactly. Look at your own stats and determine for yourself when the best time for YOU to post to YOUR audience is.

    My audience might be active at 3am and yours might be active at 3pm. Big difference and there's no right answer for everyone. It's all about what's best for YOU.

    Research your audience and learn their trends.

    Which time to post totally depends on the audience you want to target. Personally i have found that these times work for me - 9 am-10 am, during lunch time ie around 12-1 pm, and in the afternoon around 4-6 pm as I am targeting office going people for my campaigns. Basically you need to post when your target audience is online. In case of facebook, facebook insights can help. Third party sites such as hootsuite are also quite helpful.

    In my opinion, 8-10 PM are best times for getting people's attention on social media.

    For all the random times you just got, I'll share with you a stat to help you determine what's going to work for you.

    The peak-hours of internet usage are from 7pm to 11pm in America. That being said, the best times to post on something like Facebook might be different than Twitter. Twitter expects and demands high-frequency posting and you should take advantage of posting > 12 times per hour. I know that sounds like a lot but remember that most people aren't doing that and there are programs and software that can help you automate that level of frequency. Consider looking into it and finding a solution where you can pre-write posts and set them to post at certain times. I personally sell a software which solves that problem if you're interested. The second you let up on Twitter is the second you lose followers. This forces you to push out really creative content and you won't annoy people on Twitter with this level of frequency.

    Facebook is more of a 3 - 4 times a day platform for most people. But I'm weird. I'd actually recommend you post until your viewers are annoyed so you stay in their minds more. I know that's backwards philosophy for many, but if they aren't buying from you then at least make them remember your name.

    Certainly Daily. I always keep my social media strategies on priorities. Because nowadays search engines taking social media as a metric when calculating the ranking.

    My scheduling mostly depend on the type of project like national or international because time on many countries are different. But most of the people gets online between 6-8am and 10-12pm and 7pm-9pm.

    I actually post in my social media whenever I feel full emotional. Either happy or sad. And whenever I go to some places. It's just for the people to see how well I do in my time and in my life. But others tend to post negative vibes which can actually affect others that will see their post. I'd say, better keep your anger or loneliness yourself, not all Facebook friends will be there to help you. A higher chance of you being laughed about than being cared. So, just have your problems kept inside your house. LOL
