Why I shouldn't be posting my blog posts at 7:30am on Twitter

I hadn't even thought about when the best times to post on social media are, however it came as quite a shock to me when I read this article and realised that I have been doing it all wrong! Therefore I thought it was only right that I share with you what I have learnt and the questions I still have! These are the worst times to post on social media:

Twitter
8pm–8am and the worst days are Saturday and Sunday!
I tweet most at the weekend as that is when I have the most free time :(

Facebook  
12am–8am and the worst days are Saturday and Sunday as well.

LinkedIn 
9am–5pm, this time Monday and Friday are the worst days
I don't have Facebook, LinkedIn or Tumblr for my blog – do you think I should?

Tumblr 
12am–12pm 
I find this difficult to believe – unless teenagers are going to bed much earlier than in my day!

Instagram
12am–8am
How can you get more Instagram followers?! It seems an impossible form of social media to grow on.

Pinterest
1am–7am and 5pm–7pm
How exact are these times?! All I can think is that it is mothers using this site the most!

Google+ 
6pm–8am
Does anyone use this properly?

Please do comment below and help me out in the maze of social media!

  1. You have to remember though that twitter and social media in general is used across the world, so while it may not be the best time to tweet between 8am and 8pm in say the UK - well here in the US we're a min of 5 hours behind, so people are still awake and around. I say the same about posting blog posts too - blogging and social media is so global that someone, somewhere is still awake and I think more people look back at their feeds then people realise, I know I do with blogs, pinterest and facebook.

    I'd take such good/bad times statements with a pinch of salt I will be honest!

    1. That's so true. Maybe I need not worry! I didn't seem to make a difference to my stats posting at 8:30am instead of 7:30am, as bloggers say, it's all about the content!!
