The Best Times to Post on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn Other Social Media Sites [Infographic]

Social media is one of the best ways to amplify the great content you’re creating. But it isn’t enough to just post content to social whenever you feel like it. Some times are better than others.

So … When’s the best time to post content to social media?

Unfortunately, there’s no perfect answer. Different businesses may find different days and times work best for them. In fact, timing often depends on the platform you’re using, how your target audience interacts with that platform, the region(s) you’re targeting, the content of your post (e.g. funny or serious), and your goals (e.g. clicks versus shares).

That being said, there is ample data out there on optimal times to post on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Instagram. In the infographic below, we’ve pulled together data and research collected by the folks at CoSchedule from a variety of sources, including QuickSprout. SurePayroll. The Huffington Post , Buffer. TrackMaven. Fast Company. and KISSmetrics .

Think of this data as a general guideline, and use it to help you find the optimal posting times for your business.

The Best Times to Post on Social Media

Below you’ll find the data and research on the best times to post to five popular social networks: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Instagram.

Which time zones do these refer to? For a United States audience, your best bet is to combine Eastern and Central time zones, as they represent almost 80% of the U.S. population. For audiences located outside the U.S. use whichever time zones your target audience uses. Finding your target audience’s location or locations should be a part of your buyer persona research .

1) Best Times to Post on Facebook

People log in to Facebook on both mobile devices and desktop computers, both at work and at home. How it’s used depends heavily on the audience.

The best time to post on Facebook is 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday. Other optimal times include 12:00–1:00 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays and 1:00–4:00 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays. [Tweet this! ]

Engagement rates are 18% higher on Thursdays and Fridays, and weekdays from 1:00–4:00 p.m. tend to see the highest clickthrough rates. On Fridays, Facebook use spikes by 10%. Since people tend to be happier on Fridays, Neil Patel suggests posting funny or upbeat content to match your audience’s mood.

The worst times to post on Facebook are weekends before 8:00 a.m. and after 8:00 p.m, according to SurePayroll’s research .

2) Best Times to Post on Twitter

Like Facebook, people use Twitter on both mobile devices and desktop computers, both at work and at home. How it’s used also depends heavily on audience — but people often treat it like an RSS feed, and something to read during down times like commutes, breaks, and so on.

The best times to post on Twitter are weekdays from 12:00–3:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. [Tweet this! ]

For B2B organizations, the best days to post are Mondays through Fridays, and clickthrough rate is highest on Wednesdays. For B2C organizations, the best days to post are Wednesdays and the weekends, when clickthrough rate is highest. According to CoSchedule. B2B content performs 16% better during business hours, whereas B2C content performs 17% better on weekends.

Some businesses have also had success with 2:00–3:00 a.m. 6:00–7:00 a.m. and 9:00–10:00 p.m. post times. Experiment with these times and others to see if they work with your audience.

3) Best Times to Post on LinkedIn

LinkedIn is used by professionals, and they tend to use it during the workweek, during working hours, just before the workday starts, and just after it ends.

The best time to post on LinkedIn is midweek from 5:00–6:00 p.m.Other optimal times include Tuesdays from 10:00–11:00 a.m. and Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 7:30–8:30 a.m. at 12:00 p.m. and from 5:00–6:00 p.m.[Tweet this! ]

Tuesdays tend to see the most clicks and shares. especially between 10:00–11:00 a.m. Mondays see lower engagement rates than the rest of the workweek, likely because people are catching up from the weekend. Friday may see lower engagement rates too, as people are wrapping up the week and even leaving early for the weekend.

The worst time to post on LinkedIn is during the night, between 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m .

4) Best Times to Post on Pinterest

Pinterest users skew heavily female. and are most active in the evening.

The best time to post on Pinterest is in the evening any day of the week, especially Saturdays from 8:00–11:00 p.m. [Tweet this! ]

Other optimal times include every day from 2:00–4:00 a.m. and 2:00–4:00 p.m. and Fridays at 3:00 p.m.

5) Best Times to Post on Instagram

Instagram is meant for use on mobile devices, and users tend to use the network all the time, any time — although many users engage with content more during off-work hours than during the workday.

The best times to post on Instagram are Mondays and Thursdays at any time except between 3:00–4:00 p.m. [Tweet this! ]

Videos tend to perform best any night of the week between 9:00 p.m. and 8:00 a.m. according to TrackMaven’s research. Some businesses have also seen success with posting at 2:00 a.m. 5:00 p.m. and Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m. Experiment with these to see if they work with your audience.

What Social Media Content Should You Post?

The content you post to each of these social networks depends heavily on your audience. To successfully engage with your audience, you’ll have to really get to know and understand your target audience by creating detailed buyer personas .

That being said, there are best practices for types of posts on each of these networks.

The most effective posts on social media have a clear goal, whether that’s to drive traffic to your blog, encourage comments, get shared, or something else. The general rule of thumb is to keep it real and keep it relevant. On Facebook and Twitter, your posts should be roughly 30% promotional content that link back to your website or blog, and 70% value-added content that includes relevant information your target audience would find useful or interesting.

On Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Pinterest, the best posts use brief but compelling language. They also avoid click-bait phrasing. such as “You’ll never believe what happened next.” On Instagram, your captions can be slightly longer. The official character limit on Instagram is 2,200 characters, but you’ll want to cut it shorter than that to avoid losing readers along the way. Use your Instagram captions to tell a story, connect with your followers, promote an upcoming campaign, or sell a specific product pictured in your post. On all the social networks (especially Twitter and Instagram), use hashtags — but judiciously.

Finally, visual content will perform best on every social network — especially on Instagram and Pinterest, where it’s a critical part of each post. Engage your audience with photos, graphics, animated GIFs, and videos. (Check out our crash course in visual content creation if you need a hand.)

Aching to learn more about what content to publish on each network? Here are a few helpful resources for what to post and how to post it:

There you have it, folks. Happy posting, tweeting, and pinning!

What days and times have proven to be the most successful for your business? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.

HOUSTON’S SHAMROCK HOTEL – Discover Texas History #shamrock #social #club, #shamrock #hotel #houston #texas

HOUSTON’S SHAMROCK HOTEL

One of the most colorful events in Houston history was the grand opening of the famous Shamrock Hotel in 1949 on St. Patrick’s Day.

The hotel was built on fifteen landscaped acres at the intersection of Main Street and Holcombe Boulevard by Houston oilman Glenn McCarthy, a wildcatter who personified in many ways what some people still think of Texans to this day.

Approximately 50,000 people attended the grand opening, reputed to have been the wildest party in the city’s history. The rich and famous of Texas society all wanted to be there, and so did everyone else. Life Magazine called it the most dazzling exhibition of evening dresses and big names ever seen in Texas.”

Movie star Dorothy Lamour broadcast her national radio show from the hotel during the party. McCarthy wore dark glasses to hide a black eye reported to have been received in a fist fight at the train station when he went to meet the Hollywood celebrities arriving for the party.

Shamrock Hotel Emerald Room

One Houston resident recalled, “I still remember the Shamrock. It was fabulous in every way, perhaps overdone to some degree. The Emerald Room was the big ballroom, all decorated in emerald green as a tribute to McCarthy’s Irish ancestry. And there were many exciting events that took place there.”

Hotel guests and Houstonians flocked to the fancy retail shops and various restaurants, including the Cork Club, a nightclub that featured big-name entertainment.

The 18-story Shamrock had more than 1,100 guest rooms and poolside bungalows called lanais.

Houston s Shamrock Hotel – 50 meter pool

Its swimming pool was a 50-meter, Olympic-sized pool with three-meter and ten-meter diving platforms. It was big enough to accommodate a boat pulling water skiers when shows were held for the guests.

“The Shamrock was just a very glamorous place to be in Houston. It was unique; it was a place to be seen,” another Houstonian stated.

The hotel became so popular with the city’s social set that it was affectionately referred to as the “Houston Riviera.” Everything in the hotel was a little extreme, but that was typical of Glenn McCarthy, who was known to be Edna Ferber’s prototype for Jett Rink in “Giant,” her novel that was later made into the classic movie.

In the mid 1950s Conrad Hilton acquired the property and renamed it the Shamrock Hilton. Trader Vic’s, the popular restaurant opened at the hotel and caught the attention of Houstonians with its unusual Polynesian décor and food.

Some said the hotel was too big to be profitable and others thought it was too far from Houston’s central business district. It began to lose favor when newer, more modern hotels were built. The once-glamorous Shamrock Hotel, which had become a symbol of Houston, fell on hard times in the 1980s. It was demolished in 1987 and replaced with a parking lot.

The story of the Shamrock Hotel is featured in the television documentary “In Search of Houston’s History,” produced by Sunset Productions in association with the Friends of the Texas room and the Houston Public Library.

Dresses for social occasions are often not quite as dressy as those worn for cocktail parties, but are softer and more feminine than dresses appropriate for work. The types of occasions can range from attending weddings as a guest to brunch with family, church holidays, and school graduation parties. They are also often good choices for dates, dinners, and evenings out at social events such as the theater, gallery openings, and less formal cocktail parties.

The fall and winter holiday season spanning from Thanksgiving to Valentine s Day often has the dressiest styles with sequins, beading, metallics and finer fabrics such as jacquard, brocade, and velvet more the norm, with red dresses an annual favorite at this time of year. Spring occasions such as Easter, Mother s Day, and graduations favor more floral prints, cottons, and sometimes linen, although light chiffons, silk, and lace are also popular choices.

Plus-size social dresses are only available in limited numbers in most towns, while the internet offers a much larger range both in size and styles. Styles can be bare, body conscious and trendy, or more demure and appealing those who appreciate modesty.

Internet Shopping Resources for Plus-Size Social Occasion Dresses

Many of the major department stores are the best sources for dresses up to size 24W. Most carry the deepest selection of plus-size dresses on-line, with several offering larger sizes exclusively to internet customers. Free shipping has become the norm in the upscale department store space (sometimes with reasonable minimum purchase), with some even offering free returns for customer convenience. Many are geared to the needs of working, professional women who may need social dresses not just for private occasions, but also work related events. Consequently styles lean towards classic to contemporary designers, with trendier options more readily available at other types of retailers.

Expert Comment

Recent national elections have shown how divided the nation has become, with political fault lines separating communities and even families. Scholars have observed a deepening of this divide as individuals turn to news outlets that tend to confirm already held beliefs. But a University of Missouri legal expert argues that a way forward exists, and it starts with the application of principles used in dispute resolution.

Findings provide support for increased body-image awareness to improve overall health

How teenagers perceive their appearance, including their body image, can have significant impacts on health and wellness. Prior body image research has shown that people with negative body image are more likely to develop eating disorders and are more likely to suffer from depression and low self-esteem. Now, Virginia Ramseyer Winter, a body image expert and an assistant professor in the University of Missouri’s School of Social Work, found negative body image also is associated with increased tobacco and alcohol use, with implications for both young men and women. Notably, she also found relationships between substance use and perceived attractiveness, with girls who believe they are very good looking being more likely to drink. Full Story

  • Keeping detailed and concise records of each patient during the course of their treatment

  • Consultation with physicians, medical professionals and therapists when appropriate

  • Performing research tasks within a clinical setting

  • Acting as an administrator within a Social Services organization

    How a LCSW is a Service to Society

    The LCSW services human beings in a wide variety of ways. The most common career path is one of mental health counseling. With the help of the LCSW, the client can gain tremendous insight into their emotional make up and find healing around past traumas. A marriage and family counseling specialist might aid a family in working through their issues, facilitating dialogues and ensuring that everyone’s needs are met. This can result in marriages being strengthened that might otherwise end in divorce. The school counseling variation of the LCSW can help students to be properly assessed so their unique needs are met, which in turn allows them to flourish within an academic setting. There are myriad ways in which a Licensed Clinical Social Worker can service their fellow human beings and impact people on a societal, individual and family level.

    The Licensed Clinical Social Worker can impact society powerfully and in many different ways. Here are just a few examples of the impact a Licensed Clinical Social Worker can have on their community.

    • Increase in student graduation rate

  • Decrease in juvenile crime rate

  • Decrease in domestic violence rates

  • Increased emotional wellbeing of teachers and students

  • Increased efficiency of Social Service agencies they manage

  • Large positive impacts on community due to public policy studies

    Impact on the Family

    The Licensed Clinical Social Worker can help families in many different ways. They can help families to create child safety plans to keep children within the household. A School Social Worker might provide the missing insight so that a child might finally blossom at school relieving stress in the family. A Marriage and Family Counselor can help a couple resolve their grievances and find a second chance for their marriage. These are just a handful of the ways a Licensed Clinical Social worker can have an immense impact on the quality of life for families.

    Impact on the Individual

    In the context of mental health counseling, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker can have a huge impact on the individual. During the course of their treatment a client can begin to understand, resolve and heal from incredible traumas they have experienced during their lives. As a school counselor, the Licensed Clinical Social Worker can help be an advocate for a child who has severe behavioral problems in school. With the help of the LCSW, the child can begin to express their needs in a healthy way and receive the attention they need to succeed academically. The impact on the individual can be profound when they work with a Licensed Clinical Social Worker.

    Education Requirements to Join the Workforce

    You will first need to earn a Bachelor’s degree in a closely related field such as Psychology, Child Development, Social Work or Sociology. If you are planning your undergraduate degree you may want to consider a Bachelor of Social Work program as this will provide the foundation for principles you will learn in depth during your graduate studies. Once you have your Bachelor’s degree you can work towards earning your Master of Social Work.

    Range of Salaries for this Job
