Again, consistency is important when it comes to posting on social media. If you’re not consistent, then you might not get the engagement and growth that you’re wanting online.

What time on Friday is the best time to post on social media?

If you’ve read any of our other blogs this past week about the best time to post on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday is—you’ll know what we’re about to say here. Everyone’s audience on social media is different which means that the time you post compared to another person’s will be different.
Always use your own social media analytics to dive deep into what time your audience is online so you can schedule and post content at the time that is best for YOU.
However, with that said, there are times each and every day that, on average, are good times to post on social media. According to Sprout Social, here are the best times to post on Fridays:
  • Best times to post on Facebook on Friday: 8am to 12pm

Fall Back Friday

Similar to a good ol’ fashioned #TBT (throwback Thursday) post, Fall Back Friday AKA #FBF is a similar style post. If you’ve run out of ideas to post during the week, why not post something nostalgic and talk about why you want to reminisce with your followers.
Post something about your business or niche and how far you have come. Post something about an old trip you took with your family. Describe why you love that moment and ask your audience to share a moment from their past that they really like as well.

Feel Good Friday/Friday Feeling

The weekend is coming up—so share that excitement with your audience! Share a photo, video, or graphic that showcases how you feel about it being Friday. It could be a video of you dancing. It could be a photo of the sunrise. However Friday makes you feel, post about it.
Add a caption that expresses your excitement for the weekend and have your followers share their own Friday and weekend plans in the comments!

Follow Friday

Back in the original days of social media, every Friday would be a Follow Friday where you would highlight someone you think your audience should follow. And you know what? We think we should bring that back! Social media is all about community, after all.
This Friday, think about someone you think more people should be following. It could be someone who creates really great art. It could be someone who is an incredible speaker in your niche. It could be someone you’ve been following for a long time that a lot of people might not know about. Give them a shout-out and explain why people should follow them! Not only are you helping another person on the platform build their community, but this could also introduce you to a new community through the person you posted about.

Friday Fun Fact

Educate and entertain your audience by sharing a fun or surprising fact about your business, niche, or personal life (everyone loves a little behind-the-scenes on someone they follow!).
Choose something that is truly fascinating or that you know your audience would find interesting and share that, alongside an engaging video, photo, or graphic to capture your followers’ attention.
Not only will this type of post make your audience feel closer to you and want to engage with your post, it also positions you as a knowledgeable authority in your space—making people want to follow you even more.
