    It's just like the rest of the web.
    For U.S. visitors 5-8pm M-F (EST, CT, and PST), and Sunday till about 6 p.m.

    Business sites see traffic during regular business hours, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

    I would say it depends on what or where you are generating FB traffic. Your target audience. Facebook stays busy constantly 24 hours a day, even in a strictly US/UK targeted medium. If you have a way of tracking it, such as an app, ad, etc... that's the best way. I track all sorts of metrics on my ads and apps. It really helps in targeting traffic.

    It's gotta be a weird spread. You have a huge number of people that use it constantly at work. You have kids using it when they get home from school into the evening. And adults using it after dinner/work. I would be afternoons during (pick your time zone) are heaviest usage times.

    It depends on your location. But normally, FB is busiest at around 3pm and 8pm.

    If we are talking about US, then the best timings when Facebook activity is at its peak are 7am-9am, 5pm-7pm and 11pm-1am.

    To my mind, the busiest period depends on the age. It must be 4 pm to 8 pm for almost everyone, maybe 5pm to 9pm for workers.
