When it comes to social media marketing you want to make sure you get the most out of each and every single post you make in terms of reach. One of the best ways to maximize the reach of your social media posts is understanding the best (and worst) times of day to share content. Surprisingly, this time differs from site to site, but Social Caffeine’s got you covered with an infographic that lays out the best and worst times to post on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, and Pinterest.
According to the inforgraphic, the best time to post to Facebook is between 1pm and 4pm; the best time to post to Twitter is between 1pm and 3pm; the best time to post to LinkedIn is between 7am and 9am or 5pm and 6pm; the best time to post to Google+ s between 9am and 11am; and the best time to post to Pinterest is between 2pm and 4pm or 8pm and 1am. Not surprisingly, it doesn’t look good for your reach on any social sites when you post while people are fast asleep.
The infographic doesn’t get into time zone specifics, so it looks like if you’ve got a fan base in different parts of the country or world you’ll have to spread out your tweets and do a little reconnaissance work to see what works best.
Check out the infographic below for more details and let us know how you usually time your social media posts!
