Facebook:  3pm will give you the most clicks.  1pm will give you the most shares.  I wonder if sending things out to the internet at 2pm will give you the best of both worlds? (Coschedule, 2015)

Twitter:  5pm at the end of the workday (Kissmetrics, 2015).  Midweek or weekends are best for retweets or click-throughs (Coschedule, 2015).

LinkedIn:  The best days to post are Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, although Tuesdays earn the most shares and clicks (Quick Sprout, 2015).  The best times to post on LinkedIn are before and after the workday (7:30-8:30am and 5-6pm (Elle & Company, 2015).

Google+:  Posting mid-morning, between 9-10am will give you the most views (Fast Company, 2015).

Pinterest:  Before and after work hours are the best times to post (7:30-8:30am and 5-6pm, and the best day to post is Saturday (Coschedule, 2015).

Instagram:  Videos posted at 9pm earn 34% more reactions, and the best times to post are between 2-3pm and 8-9pm (Coschedule, 2015).

Based on this information, I’m going to schedule this post for Thursday at 5pm.
