You have many to-dos on your list, many e-mails in your inbox waiting to be answered, and meetings to be attended.

All things considered, many professionals prefer to start the week offline to catch up with all these. So, it is not the best time to check their LinkedIn account, build new relationships, and engage with others.

Further, people may not want to be present on LinkedIn on Fridays due to various reasons. First of all, it is the end of the week; they possibly prefer to get things squared away before the weekend.

The best time to post on LinkedIn is between Tuesday through Thursday during business hours.
