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.
