Are you getting the ROI on the time and effort you put into your social media efforts? Experts suggest that timing plays a big role in how successful your social media campaigns will be.

According to the online payroll company SurePayroll’s blog, here are the best and worst times to post on your favorite social media sites:

  • Facebook. Posting from 1-4 p.m. yields the highest click-through rate. The worst time to post is on the weekends before 8 a.m. and after 8 p.m.
  • Twitter. Post Monday to Thursday from 1-3 p.m., but don’t waste your time tweeting after 8 p.m. any day of the week or after 3 p.m. on Friday.
  • LinkedIn. Your best bet for maximum exposure is to post anytime Tuesday through Thursday. Yep, that’s right. Avoid Mondays when professionals are at their busiest or Fridays when they may be trying to wrap up their week and disengage from work.
