BEST TIME TO POST ON GOOGLE PLUS

Indeed, as mediatapper points out, the time of the day you post plays a very important role.

SO WHEN IS IT THE BEST TIME TO POST?

That depends on many factors like what countries are your followers from and so on. To give you an example… Sunday (at around 5PM GMT+2 -> romanian time) I shared the post New Features & Updates For Google Plus Brand Pageshttp://goo.gl/WMTzo which I'm sure if it was shared at another time, would have been more successful than Introducing Filters For A Better What's Hot Sectionhttp://goo.gl/s3EtM. Most likely, the first post would have houndreds of reshares if I was to post it during the workdays.

Yeah, I've seen that on Google+ (at least with my profile, having followers from all over the world) best time to post is not during the weekend, but during the normal weekdays. Probably because on Google+ the average user is more business oriented then the facebook average user and it uses Google+ for brand oriented purposes.

Also, best time to post for me is usually between 5PM to 10PM GMT+2 because at this hour it's evening in Europe, the europeans come home after work and take a look in the social media. The asian people are still awake… (late evening) and the americans get close to the lunch break, they loosen up on work and check out the social media. I'm sure it would also be a good time to post between 6PM to 11PM New York time, but that's when I'm sleeping. 😐

FACTORS TO CONSIDER WHEN POSTING:
(as +Miguel Rodriguez said on mediatapper)

1. Time of the day when your target interest group is most active
2. The post “Time to live”. How the amount of comments and re-shares is distributed across the post life
3. Day of the week. People are more active over the weekends on social sites.
4. How many posts you make per day.
