Learning the know hows to post on social media is obviously more than just any feeling in one’s bones! “Knowing the best times to post, as well as managing communities is limited to a few likes” – If you think so, you’re downright mistaken. With shifts in audience spectrum, network changes and so does the brand engagement! If this is the case, then how does Facebook, Inc. (NASDAQ: FB) – the social media leviathan – gain a competitive edge over other companies, when it comes to audience interaction or brand engagement? This has been quite aptly answered by Unmetric, which studies and reveals the best time to post on Facebook to get more likes, comments, and shares for a specific brand.
