Optimal posting time? (via: Are there optimal days/hours to post questions in order to get visibility and answers? – Meta Super User)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/09/22

A while ago, i came across this interesting question: Are there optimal days/hours to post questions in order to get visibility and answers? – Meta Super User.

The recommended time 1400 UTC is related to my blog post scheduling behaviour.

Virtually all my blog posts are either (when both apply at the same time, that is pure coincidence):

I schedule posts on Monday through Friday:

Difference between 0600 UTC and 1400 UTC

So why the time difference of about 8 hours between 0600 UTC and 1400 UTC?

That has to do with the public I generally interact with: software developers speaking English, mainly living in European and USA, with a minority in India, Asia and down-under.

  • At 0600 UTC, most Europeans are about to wake up or just arrived at work, so they get fresh content. Still quite a few people from India and Asia are up (returning from work) can read it the same day it was posted. And virtually everyone in the USA is still sleeping, so they get fresh content too.
  • At 1400 UTC, most Europeans are at work, people at the USA East Coast just started working and the rest of the USA is waking up and (hopefully) going to work. So you get a huge group of on-line people online with a high chance if comment/answer interaction on your question: great for getting answers on the same day.

Steps to take when Publicize/Sharing to Facebook breaks (via: Forums)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/02/21

Every couple of months, posts do not arrive on FaceBook

A few quotes, the last one is what I found out myself after reading the first post:


sharing and Publicize are two different things. You have to manually Share. Publicize is automatic.

Facebook continuously changes things and you may have to disconnect the Publicize to Facebook, clear your Facebook Cache, and reconnect.


@raincoaster how do I clear my Facebook cache?

The /wp-admin/options-general.php?page=sharing page is a bit confusing: the title is “sharing,” but it is indeed about “publicizie”. In that page, Facebook is connected, and all my posts are marked as publicize to Facebook.


No need to clear the Facebook cache.

The trick is to

  1. read the topic at
  2. then follow the Publicize — Support — steps here:
  3. and here:
