Social Media Posting Times

Posting to social media accounts isn’t just about throwing your message out to the world and hoping for the best. There is actually a science to the process, and that science has been broken down by the team at internet marketing firm Fannit.

So when should you post to Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, and Pinterest? The answer is dependent on the social network you are attempting to optimize.

Get the timing just right and your posts have a much better chance of going viral. Get them wrong and you might as well be screaming to yourself in an empty forest.
