[Infographic] Best Times To Post on Social Media

I found an interesting article in Entrepreneur.com about the best and worst times to post to social media.  For obvious reasons, the worst is late at night/early in the morning, but I was a bit surprised about how the most optimal times vary among the social media sites.  I've posted the summary of the best times and the accompanying info-graphic below.  If you have a different experience with these or other social media sites, please share.


Blog: Monday, Friday and Saturday at 11 a.m.

Twitter: On weekends from 1 p.m.-3 p.m.

LinkedIn: 7 a.m.-8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m.-6 p.m.

Google+: 9 a.m.-11 a.m.

Facebook: Weekdays 6 a.m.- 8 a.m. and 2 p.m.-5 p.m.

Pinterest: On Saturday from 2 p.m.-4 p.m. and 8 p.m.-11 p.m.

It's also worthy to point out that most serial content creators post the same material multiple times throughout the day in order to reach a greater variety of people.
