Accessibility Bites: Social Media

*Note: This session has passed. Please view the resources and recordings below.

You often hear others talk about accessibility, but you’re not quite sure how to put it into practice (or maybe you just haven’t had a chance). These Accessibility Bites sessions are for you!

Join your host Helena Prins and facilitator Josie Gray in Zoom for one or all of the five 30-minute sessions taking place on the last Thursday of every month except December.

Session 4: Social Media

This is a short drop-in session where we will talk about accessibility considerations across social media platforms. If you use Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, or TikTok, these considerations will apply.

What to bring: A device you can use to access your social media accounts (mobile or computer is fine). These can be your personal or professional accounts.


  • 10 minutes: Presentation to highlight some key things to keep in mind when you create and share social media posts. This includes:
    • Hashtags
    • Emojis and special characters
    • Images and GIFs
    • Videos
  • 10 minutes: Everyone works individually to explore accessibility on the social media platforms they use most. Your host and facilitator will be available for questions.
  • 10 minutes: Everyone will come together to reflect on how it went and ask additional questions.
