When is the best time to post on TikTok?
TikTok has a large user base, and is also the second most downloaded application on iOS devices. And chances are, if you’re reading this article, you have been considering posting at least one video to TikTok.
In theory, any day of the week will have an audience viewing TikTok videos during its peak hours. However, according to a study conducted by a TikTok user ‘dktricky’, the best days to post on TikTok are Monday and Thursday.
In contrast, Saturday is reportedly the worst day to upload a video to TikTok as users are spending their time with family and friends.
TikTok has another feature which displays your most popular posts. This can be found under your profile by clicking on ‘See Popular’.
The best time to post on TikTok is also determined by how many likes and comments your video receives. If you want more likes, then you should wait for peak hours. Peak hours are when the most users are active, which usually falls between 7-11 pm EST.
What are some examples of good/popular posts made during this time?
On average, users who post on Monday and Thursday receive an average of 120 likes per video. The minimum amount of views for a posted video include 15,000 and 40,000. On Saturday, despite receiving an extremely small number of likes (10-20), the average number of views is over 35,000.
If you want to receive the most likes and followers, then TikTok recommends that you post between 7-9 pm EST on Monday or Thursday. But if you’re looking to gain views, it may be best to post on Saturday alone.
On the other hand, if you want more comments on your video, avoid posting during peak hours since people are mostly active with their friends and family then. If you upload your video at 5 am EST for example, only a few users are awake to watch your video.
During what times do people not like or rarely watch posts?
If you want to receive the most comments, then it would be best for you to post on Monday at 4 am EST or so since nobody is awake around this time. Since TikTok recommends that you post during peak hours, posting on Saturday between 8-11 pm EST may also give you a decent amount of comments as well.
Please note: the time zones mentioned here is for Central Time (CST).
To conclude, the best days to post on TikTok are Monday and Thursday. The best time to post is between 7-9 pm EST or so. However, you should not post during peak hours since there will be less viewers. If you want more views, avoid posting in peak hours and aim for Sunday or early morning (4 am EST or so). Even though there will be less viewers, you’ll still gain a decent amount of views. If you want more likes, it’s best to post during peak hours since there will be lots of active users.
