What and when to post on Facebook
Knowing what and when to post on Facebook (or any other social media website for that matter) can help you understand how to get the most out of each posting. You’ll be able to get more likes, shares and comments which help to further promote not just the post, but also your page/profile by having more engagement from users. This engagement is also seen by the user’s friends and subscribers having an even larger impact.
This data is nothing new, and has been rehashed many times over. So, it’s been proven many times and can therefor truly help you out in your social marketing campaign. Post when the most people are online, post items that engage the user to share, like or comment. Even asking questions or telling them to like something works. It’s all about interacting with them and not just talking TO them.
