Social Media Insider – Timing & Listening




Q. I say reposting social posts is a bad idea, my colleague disagrees. Who’s right?

A. I picked this question because this week we’re talking about post timing, and that lets me say you’re both right! Spamming a feed with the same post repeatedly within a short time frame is a bad idea. But bringing back an older post that has topical currency today, or with an update, is a great idea. Remember, educators and teachers are busy people. If they missed your post the first time, they’ll appreciate a repost if it’s relevant and timely.
