When’s The Best Time To Use Social Media?

I found a great infograph titled “The Science of Social Timing.”  It helps you to figure out the best times to post on your social networks to get the maximum exposure.  You can check out the infograph below, but I’ve also highlighted some of the key ‘take aways.’  Let’s take a look at them:
