What Will Be Trending on Social Media in July…

Summer’s here and so are vacation days. Before you go on vacay, schedule out your social media posts to take advantage of what’s going to be trending on Social Media in July.

We’re still on COVID-19 watch. Please be careful when using anything related to COVID-19 — especially hashtags.

I publish this every month so you can plan ahead how you can “spin” your marketing message to take advantage of what’s trending on social media — mostly Twitter.


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.

How to use this list:

Peruse the list and take note of any interesting days or awareness/observances that relate to your business or is fun or generic enough that you an spin your marketing message around it. Get creative and have fun! Write a blog post and schedule it out to go on that day.

The months’ observances usually trend (lots of people are talking about it) in the first few days of the months. Weeks tend to trend on the Sunday or Monday and days start early in the morning depending if it’s a world/global observance or national. So, take time zones into consideration when scheduling. If you miss the first days of the month, even though it might not be “trending” at the time, publish a post anyway as long as it’s in the month of the observance.

Schedule out tweets using TweetDeck (updated!). And don’t forget those silly, but useful hashtags that trend on Twitter regularly!

Most of these observances 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.
