SOCIAL MEDIA TIME MANAGEMENT
Social media has become an everyday source for news, exposure and promotion for businesses, individuals and large-scale companies.
There are tools that can be used to ensure your management of time is efficient when publishing information on social media platforms like, Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
Cloud and social media tools have become a normal part of day-to-day life for many students and staff, but their use in the classroom can raise a range of ethical and legal concerns. With a sound understanding of some
basic principles of data protection, however, staff should be able to legally and ethically experiment and innovate with digital tools as part of their teaching. This can be to better engage and include students/ audience depending on their learning styles.

How does it work?
The outreach that can be gained via social media can provide huge coverage / engagement if written and deployed in the correct fashion. Fuller engagement occurs when posts are scheduled at “prime times” during the day and week – these selected times can vary depending on the audience you are aiming to connect with.
Generally, the key times to post is Monday mornings 6-8 am and by providing a # to keywords this can be a way to specifically target the location/ audience/ brands which will give you better appreciation / engagement.
