Social media

Helpful advice for making your social media posts more accessible.

Use alt text for your images

  • Twitter - enable alt text in settings
  • Facebook - go to advanced settings
  • LinkedIn - add alt text when prompted
  • Instagram - use advanced settings when adding an image
General guidelines:
  • Accessible hashtags - use CamelCase
  • Avoid Emoji overuse
  • Put mentions (e.g. @UofGlasgow) at the end so key content is covered first
  • Use captions on content from videos to Instagram stories
  • BSL interpretation recommended for high-value content
