This week I am evaluating the most effective times to engage with others using social media. Time Management is my #1 challenge in LIFE. I have seen positive results from interaction on Twitter and Facebook (more traffic to my sites, more productive relationships with friends, family and clients). The only question is when to interact.

WHEN DO YOU USE TWITTER THE MOST?
Weekdays? Weekends? Late at night? Early morning? Mid-day?
WHEN DO YOU USE FACEBOOK THE MOST?
(answer in comments section at bottom of this post)
If you follow me, I want to give you great content, delivered at times when you are most likely to see it. So what say you?
Each answer will enter you to win a profile post on this site. I will pick the most interesting of the responses and then write something (flattering) about you and why people should engage with you in social media.

There are many polls and statistics out there about this subject, but I want to hear from YOU and compare my results with statistics published elsewhere.
Why is it important?
Why does an ad on a prime time TV show on a broadcast network cost more than one on local cable outlet at 2 am? Because there’s more eyeballs on the screen!
Likewise, people tend to engage more on social networks on certain days of the week, specific times of day.
Effective Use of Your Time
Obviously it would be best to engage at times when there are more “eyeballs on the screen” just like in television, if you want to get the most traction from your posts.
What Will I Do?
I will tailor my use of Tweet scheduling applications to post at times and days when my readers are most likely to engage. I always supplement scheduling with live tweets (never use scheduling only) but there are days when I am too busy with my business to do that. Lately I have become a fan of two free scheduling applications which I can recommend for you to try.
My 2 Favorite FREE Schedule Apps
Buffer – Allows you to schedule tweets at specific times every day. The free version gives you 10 tweets a day, or you can pay for an upgrade which allows up to 50 tweets a day. This is a great service.
If you do, would you please do one or more small favors for me? I’ll be your biggest fan…
