I do not use the schedule feature due to the unreliable nature of  that feature. The best time to post .... is when you do it.

Hi Peter -- I use the post scheduling function and it typically works for me. Regarding timing, I imagine it depends on what you are looking to achieve. My primary goal is to attract potential clients as they search for real estate related posts in my area so the exposure I receive from AR is "always open".  

Typically, I tend to "schedule" for early am and then check in the morning to see if everything looks okay.

Hi, Peter.

   I haven't used it in a long time, because it wasn't working.  

   Best time to post is when people are sitting at their computers or looking at their tablets/smartphones.   Eastern Time that would be 10:05AM coffee break, 12:05PM lunch, 6:00PM home from work.

I guess I am a stream of consciousness writer so it is whenever the spirit moves me. The bigger question is who is the audience. In my opinion if the content is put into a specific context then the public will find it.

There are some early birds. Barbara T is on AR before she goes to work out. I would say 5-7 EST.

I also notice at 3-4 AM EST there are eastern AR posting or answering questions. Can not sleep?
