Social Media Alternatives

Because of its quick, direct, interactive and inclusive nature, social media has the potential to be very empowering for people with disabilities. However, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, YouTube, Vimeo, Flickr, Pinterest, Instagram and others can each present specific accessibility issues that may need to be resolved.
