Check out this guide from Sprout Social on the Best Times to Post on Social Media

There are lots of web articles and postings about the best time to post to different social accounts. What I like about this one is how they break it down to different categories — including one on “Education.” It gives data on targeting best times to post to capture the attention of students and alumni and that’s who most student media programs are looking to get in front of.

The piece shares prime posting times for Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn and shares how they got the data. It also breaks down prime posting times for a variety of categories from Global Engagement and Nonprofit Engagement to Education Engagement and Healthcare Engagement.
