    I have recently decided to stop running FL 24/7 and to instead run from 7am to 11pm. I think this will actually improve my engagement rate as the number of people who see my posts will increase.

    What do you guys think?

    I run my bot 24/7, but it is not FL. 7 pm happens every hour.

    Well I guess if you post every hour then 24/7 would be good.

    I only post once or twice a day, so my thinking is that I want my followers to be active around the times I post.

    I don't post every hour. Only once a day. I mean that followers that came home after work that may follow my account are everywhere where 7 pm hits.

    Ok but my point is that if you run FL 24/7, you will have gathered followers in different countries that are sleeping/at work etc when you post at 7pm in your local time.

    So if you want more engagement, it seems to make sense to gather followers in a specific time window.

    Results varies for each accs. The gain you receive depends on how you interact with your audience, content of posts, comments, etc. Only you would know the answer to this after you run both ways. Whichever works with you, stick to it.
