According to this infographic, a tweet sent in the evening is not going to reach as many people as a tweet sent in the afternoon.
When updating social media you ideally want your posts to be seen by as many people as possible.
But how do you know when is the best time to post on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and other social networks?
Social Caffeine has gone to the effort of compiling research from all over the web into an insanely simple infographic.
It lists all the best times to post to the major social networks as well as which times you’re best to avoid.
You can use this infographic to help you set aside time during the day to engage your networks when they’re most active.
Or if you use a scheduling tool like Buffer, you can consult this infographic when scheduling your updates for the day to make sure you’re reaching the most people possible.
Here are some key takeaways:
- The best times to post to these networks rarely overlap, so syncing your updates across all networks is a poor strategy.
- If you want to make an impact on Facebook and Twitter you should dedicate some time to using social media during your lunch break.
- If you want to build your business on Pinterest, try getting up early Saturday morning and start pinning.
- Apparently there is a best and worst time to post to Google+, who knew? Ok, sorry for the Google+ bashing, I really believe it has a lot of potential!
Please note that the following times are in Eastern Standard Time.
