Boosting your startups brand and services are very important, social media has become an great way to do this buy building up fans, followers and word of mouth direct content and information distribution. Some of the popular types of media are Twitter, Pintrest, Face book and Linkedin. There are optimal times to post on social media sites and there are times when you don’t want to post. If you post or share at certain times, your post won’t be seen, no matter how many followers or friends that you have. So, when is the best time to post on social media networks? There’s a great infographic out that details all of this for you.

So, basically, if you plan your day right, and you are doing any posting and promoting of items that you want to get seen, then this is how your day should look:

7:00am post to LinkedIn
9:00am post to Google +
1:00pm post to Facebook
2:00pm post to Twitter
3:00pm post to Pinterest

There are times when people go on LinkedIn, which is before and after work. Then, while they are at work using Google, people are looking at Google+. After lunch, people check their Facebook and Twitter. Then, after work they are unhappy with their job. So, they go back onto LinkedIn. Then, after 8:00pm people are hanging out on Pinterest.

If you were promoting a certain blog post, or article, for example, then you could set up “reminders” such as a Microsoft Outlook appointment to post at a certain time on a certain social network. Especially if there is a certain day that you’re launching a new product, posting a new blog post, or whatever.
