From this infographic I would say that Pinterest, Tumblr and Google + are aimed at out of work hours ... so a good channel for B2C content, particularly with images.  Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn all good for B2B and B2C, but generally looked at during normal working hours .  A great tool and useful insight.
