Keeping up with Social Media Accessibility

As social media content creators and managers, it is hard to keep up with social media platform updates. Unfortunately, when these modifications occur on social networks, inevitably the accessibility functionality is left behind and not included with those "slight tweaks". In this presentation, you'll learn of the many social media accessibility changes and challenges that have occured on the top social media platforms and how to fix them.  Attendees can participate and follow the content creation process step-by-step using their devices in real-time in order to post accessible messages and images for most social media networks. Attendees will leave this session with the understanding of how to post accessible digital content, new tips to minimize the process timeline, and updated ways to test messaging.
