What’s Going to be Trending on Social Media in December

What's going to be trending in December

December is such a fun month. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukah or Kwanzaa, it’s a month mostly of partying, shopping and gift-giving. However this year has affected you or your business, you can’t stop marketing or people will think you fell off the face of the earth.

Schedule out tweets using TweetDeck — especially over the holidays. Even if you’re on vacation, you can still have your marketing and website working for you. Plan ahead!
