Facebook as we know it
Facebook’s sweet spot for engagement is on Thursdays, 9-10 AM and showed weekends lower engagement. Wednesday is the day where most people get active.
Brands should focus to publish between 9am and 2pm the get most interactions. When brands focus on office hours they miss their audience in the evening for interaction. The Facebook audience is most active between 8pm and 9pm.
