This is an interesting infographic on the best times to post to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and other social networks. It comes from Social Caffeine. Note that the best times to post to LinkedIn are 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. to 6 p.m., suggesting that the professionals who use LinkedIn are most commonly checking it just before or after work.

    Yes, but. I have found that the best time to put up blog posts on my blog is between 3 to 4 am Pacific Time. This time pulls in readers from Asia who are still at work, pulls in those on the East Coast who are just getting online, and also makes the posts “fresh” enough for the West Coasters when they awake. Also found that Monday morning is the absolute best day, with Tuesday and Sunday next, then Wednesday and Thursday. Then Friday, with Saturday being a total readership graveyard because it’s Saturday in the US and Sunday in Asia. So a lot depends on who you are trying to reach.

    • You make a good point. Timing depends a lot on who you are trying to reach and the time zones in which they are located.

    I do have a question about all of this, first off, what is the time zone that this is for? Is it a universal thing or more specific to a certain region? I have seen that optimum posting is for Facebook is 5pm but I have also seen that posting between 8PM-7AM rather than 7am – 8pm yields upwards of 14% increase.

    Is this because of the lack of traffic so there is more room to reach out and your posts are less likely to be lost in the masses?

    But all and all, I truly appreciate this posting and find it to be extremely helpful since a majority of the information lines up with the other content I have found. It is tough to find a single source that lines up with even one other site with most of its information.


  • Really interesting article. We are about to beta launch a website that will allow lawyers to electronically share when they upload content. It may be worth adding something that allows them to set when it gets shared to the various social networks.
