Best Times to Post on Social Media
What are the best times to post across social media platforms? There’s a lot of discussion around this but here are some ideas and times that may work best for you (note all times are EST):
Google+: Best times here are between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. on weekdays. Likely this is due to the demographic on G+ which is largely tech and male.
Pinterest: Weekday evenings and weekends tend to be the hottest and busiest times. Suggested times are 2 to 4 p.m. on weekends and 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. on weekdays.
Twitter: Hottest times are between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Monday-Thursday.
Facebook: The highest use on this site tends to be 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
LinkedIn: Oddly, though this site has a huge business demographic, most posting times are before and after regular business hours – so 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. on, but only from Tuesday through Thursday!
