Posting on social media doesn’t have to feel like throwing darts and hoping one sticks. Fortunately for all of us, there’s some pretty well-documented data on the optimal times to get posting on each of the major social networks: Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Google+.

Thanks to HubSpot, we’ve got a nice rundown of the best times. You can check them out at the link below.

The Best Time to Post on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Google+

A few takeaways from the article…

  • 80% of the US population is in the Central and Eastern time zones.
  • For Facebook – posting at 3 PM will get you the most clicks, while 1 PM will get you the most shares.
  • For Twitter – Wednesday around noon and 5-6 PM are peak moments during workers’ breaks.
  • For LinkedIn – Business people are more likely to read LinkedIn in the mornings, much like the newspaper.
  • For Pinterest – Don’t post on Pinterest during work hours! No one is on during work.
  • For Instagram – The best time is 8-9 AM. Don’t post at 3-4 PM.
  • For Google+ – 90% of users are lurkers, which means they won’t interact with your content.
