Social Media


Always address the accessibility of Social Media.


Social Media’s accessibility issues deal with images. Include image descriptions in alt tags or in the body for any images used in social media posts.


Use descriptive alt tags and image descriptions in social media posts. If alt tags are not available, describe images in the body of the post.
