There might be several reasons and one among them could be wrong posting time.
Yes, Start Blog 123 posted an infographic that’s really interesting. They did a nice work by making your life easy. You now know what is the most suitable time to post on Facebook and what is the worst time to tweet.
Best Time to Post on Facebook
An average of 3 posts a day between 1 PM to 4 PM work best. Posts with 1 to 2 hashtags outperform posts with more hashtags. The best day to post is between Wednesdays and Friday while weekends tend to be worst days.
Best Time to Post on Twitter
Best time of the day to post on your Twitter account is between 12 PM and 6 PM. Anything after 8 PM will be a disaster.

Best Time to Post on Google Plus

Though it is a nice and extremely useful data-driven infographic but the source of information is missing. I am not sure how they have collected this data. The only argument that I see is that the best time to post on social media is when people are bored at work.
If their analysis, data, and statistics are based on this very argument, a lot of people and experts might disagree.
But it is an interesting finding and it makes sense too.
