A Guide to the Best Times to Post on Social Media (Infographic)
Do you post social-media updates when your audience has the highest chance of seeing them, or just whenever you think of it or happen to have a free minute?
If you aren't posting to a social media site when most of your audience members are on it, all that time you spent crafting the update goes to waste. And you're a busy person. You don't have any time to waste.
An infographic from Fannit.com lists the best and worst times to post to all the major social media sites: Pinterest, LinkedIn, Google+, Twitter, Facebook and your blog. While all audiences are different, you can use these times as a general guide. Here are the best times to post to each site:
Pinterest: On Saturday from 2 p.m.-4 p.m. and 8 p.m.-11 p.m.
LinkedIn: 7 a.m.-8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m.-6 p.m.
