As we discussed during our recent #SocialGov Summit on Accessibility, when working with social media, it’s important to find the right balance of creating engaging content and also ensuring that the content is accessible to all your communities. Using helpful hints collected from the summit and presented through DigitalGov University, however, you can start making small changes now to help make your content understandable to all.
Join us for “Making Social Media Accessible: What You Can Do Today” Wednesday, Dec. 19 at 2pm EST (register here), a new webinar that will one-by-one go through social media tools and demonstrate small tips you can apply to make your content more accessible. The session is hosted by Scott Horvath, Web and Social Media Chief for U.S. Geological Survey, and an active member of the Federal Social Media Community of Practice who curated a list of key takeaways from the recent #SocialGov Summit on accessibility.
The format and preparation for this DigitalGov University session is of itself a new model for us. Set at 20 minutes long, it’s a shorter program than our longer hour-long webinars and designed to provide you with quick, actionable insights that you can immediately apply at your agency. Also, the content itself was curated from best practices from social media managers across government who contributed them collectively on a shared Hackpad page.
We look forward to presenting you this new learning session that truly is created by and for the federal social media community.
