Frequently Asked Questions

Hootsuite uses your last 30 days of social media results to determine the optimal days and times to post. Specifically, it takes into account your historical average impressions, engagement rate, link clicks, comments, and more to calculate when you’re most likely to get the most eyes on your post. It also determines your ideal post times by when your fans and followers are online.

You can see suggestions for the best times to publish on Facebook Pages, Twitter (X), Instagram Business, LinkedIn, Pinterest, YouTube, and TikTok accounts within Hootsuite Analytics.

Of course! Hootsuite lets you put your entire social media strategy on autopilot. Schedule posts at the best time today, tomorrow, or anytime in the future. With Hootsuite, you can schedule up to 350 posts at once — all of which can be set to go live at the right time for that network.
