50% Of Clicks Happen Within 1 Hour Of Posting
How long do users interact with a Facebook post after it has been posted?
We looked at over 250,000 clicks on Facebook posts to better understand the life of a post. To see how a post fared over time, we found the percentage of total clicks that occur within each minute after posting.
This is what we saw:
The two times to note from the graph:
- 1 hour (62 minutes)
- 9 hours (550 minutes)
As we can see the graph initially drops steeply and within the first hour 50% of clicks have been clicked. At the 2 hour mark we begin to see the curve of the graph begins to slowly taper off. We see that 90% of the clicks happen within nine hours of posting.
In one hour 50% of the users who will engage with a Facebook post will have done so. >Tweet this<
