What’s going to be Trending in April on Social Media

Well, this April seems to be way brighter than last year! The travel industry seems to be coming alive again as well as brick-and-mortar retail shops and restaurants. Now is time to take advantage of what will be trending so you can get extra exposure for your business.

So, we have April Fools Day and Easter — what else will be trending in April on social media?

I publish this every month so you can plan ahead how you can “spin” your marketing message to benefit from what’s trending on social media.


These are just some of the observance and awareness days. For the full list, visit these sites:

These calendars offer some links to details on the observances that might help you if you’re blogging. Schedule out tweets using TweetDeck. And don’t forget those silly, but useful hashtags that trend on Twitter regularly!

Most of these will have hashtags. Be careful with apostrophes. Hashtags work with only with letters and numbers. As soon as you add a space or a symbol, it ends the hashtag.
