    22. 22. Wall Posting Tips - We noted: “Post in the morning for most industries”** ** HOWEVER, this is industry specific! Know your audience! A recent Buddy Media study found that daily Facebook engagement has three peaks: early morning (7 a.m. EST), after work (5 p.m. EST) and late at night (11 p.m. EST). Therefore, posting all of your updates during the workday means you’re missing key opportunities to engage fans at non-work hours.

    23. 23. Wall Posting Tips - Good Timing for Posting on Facebook depends on the day of the week per industry! Retail – Sunday is a big day for engagement on the shopping and retail front, so target shoppers on Sunday! Entertainment – Friday, Saturday, and Sunday were most important post times Media : Weekends had strong engagement while Monday was the weakest. Automotive : Auto related companies saw the most engagement on Sunday’s Travel and Hospitality : The highest engagement occurs on Thursday and Friday, when the week is winding down and people are looking to escape from the office.
