What, besides the content of the link, do you consider when posting?

It feels like the internet has changed from a time when some friend might IM you a link to cat-scan.com and you'd think 'I have no idea how these people got their cats wedged in their scanners or why' and post a link to that site to Metafilter. With social media and content aggregators and embeds, the same basic content can appear in a whole lot of different contexts -- you might see it on Facebook's sidebar, or BuzzFeed or Bored Panda or all of the above. So which one do you link to? How much does context matter when the post is supposed to be about the content? [more inside]

How should you tag posts?

I’ve made many posts, and given them lots of tags. Often, I’ve often gotten very specific with them - adding all of the names of the authors of news articles, etc. Lately, as I’ve tried to search for buried threads, I’ve become uncertain that getting so specific has been particularly useful. (Someone looking for a post isn’t likely to remember that it contained a particular news article written by person X as opposed to the article’s topic.) What are your best practices for tagging posts, and your best practices for searching for tagged posts?

Maximizing AskMe

Ok, I couldn't find this anywhere but it seems fairly straightforward: When is the best time to post a question to AskMe, when is the questioner most likely to get the most answers? Or, what days/times of the week are the most answers posted to AskMe?
