At around [time]: sobre or hacia?

It seems that one can use both sobre and hacia to express that "at around/around" a certain time something is happening. e.g. "I meet you at around seven". 


Can they be used interchangeably in this context or is there a difference between when one would use sobre and when hacia?

Hola Karim

Yes, you're right, hacia can be used with this same meaning. I would say they are interchangeable, maybe sobre being more commonly used. 

I added a note to link these two lessons.

Gracias y saludos
