A lot has been said about social timing. Getting your content in front of the right people involves getting it out at the right time on fast-paced social networks.

This infographic from Social Caffeine explores when’s the best time to post to Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+ and Pinterest.

A large part of timing your social content will rely on your audience. When they’re online and engaged is usually a good time to post your most exciting stuff!

But there are some general rules of thumb that you can follow to help guide your timing, especially when you’re just getting started on social media.

Posting to Twitter, for instance, between 1 PM and 3 PM is best for engagement. Traffic on Twitter seems to build starting at 11 AM, while it starts to fade at 3 PM. And posting after 3 PM on Fridays is the absolute worst time you can tweet, according to this infographic.

Take a look at the other best and worst times to post to your favorite social networks below:
