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

What's Trending in April?

So, we have April Fools Day and Passover — what else will be trending in April on social media? Now is the time to plan ahead and take advantage of what will be trending so you can get extra exposure for your business.

I publish this every month so you can brainstorm how you can “spin” your marketing message to benefit from what’s trending on social media. You may even get some event ideas!


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 only with letters and numbers. As soon as you add a space or a symbol, it ends the hashtag.

Here’s what’s going to be trending in April:
