Although there is no one-size-fits-all approach, marketers have had success publishing on LinkedIn Tuesday through Thursday, often between the hours of 8 a.m. and 2 p.m., depending on your time zone. Weekends and outside of business hours, which are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., are the worst times to post.
Share now (Friends): Publishes the post to your timeline without any additional text. Share to News Feed: This option opens the post in a new tab, allowing you to add more text to your message.
