I am making an effort to be a more effective pinner. I have been under-utilizing Pinterest and my realization prompted some research.
I was planning on pinning this article, but I wasn't able to find a picture that I deemed pin-able.
Here is another:
This article has an infographic, which I like, but has some conflicting information.
Like anything you research in the interwebz, I expected some variation in the times. Some articles said to pin between 2 and 4pm, some said the high traffic times were between 5 and 7 and to pin about an hour before that, and others said that the 5 to 7 time was the kiss of death. Clear as mud, right? I did notice a time they all agreed was prime time to pin: Saturday Mornings.
Here is what I am thinking, and I would love to hear your opinions, teacher friends. Teacher pinners may be a subset in the Pinterest world. To know when to pin education content, I plan to do some research.
I will start pinning at various times in the day:
2pm to 4pm weekdays
4pm to 6pm weekdays
5am (let's be honest, this one might not happen!)
After a bit, I will know which times worked best for me. I will let you know.
If you have been working out the best times to pin, I would love to hear from you!
