What’s the Best Time of Day to Post?
As we all know by now, timing is everything when it comes to social media success. Posts almost always do better when your audience sees it within the first hour of posting – so targeting your audience when they’re active is key.
But, how do we know when our audience is active? The quick answer: it depends. It depends on where you’re based, the demographics of your audience, the day of the week, and much more. Here’s how you can find the best time:
- Make an educated guess. Start with your own patterns – if you’re more likely to be active on Instagram on the weekends because you’re working during the week, others are probably doing the same. Stay-at-home moms or dads, on the other hand, might be more likely to scroll through their feeds during the late mornings while their kids are at school.
- Check your Instagram analytics. This is the most accurate way of knowing when your specific audience is most active. The only drawback to this method is that you need to already have a business account that’s been running for some time. If you’re trying to expand your reach to a new audience, or starting fresh, these stats won’t help you much.

You may have heard about the advancements of AI art. Nestle France has a new campaign featuring advanced AI DALL.E outpainting for one of its brands, La Laitière, a dairy snack company.
Johnannes Vermeer’s “The Milkmaid” starts the ad, but is soon joined by other generated figures to create a crowd, rather than a lone milkmaid. It’s visually ✨lovely✨ and takes the focus off of just yogurt and implies that the brand’s recipe and process are something to admire. You’ll have to watch it to view the final masterpiece.
