    60. 60. what is being done?<br />
    61. 61. what is being done?<br />Facebook is working with the American Foundation for the Blind (AFB) to make its social-networking service more accessible to users who are blind or visually impaired [...] Facebook is also working with AFB on design changes. Still, Augusto [head of the AFB] admits the ultimate goal — full accessibility for vision impaired users — is “far from being attained”<br />508 portal: Facebook to make site more accessible to blind<br />
    62. 62. what is being done?<br />Accessible Twitter (@AccessibleTwitr) is an award-winning, web-based interface for Twitter that is designed to be accessible. All links are keyboard accessible, large text and contrast colors are used as well as forms & data tables are marked up for optimal accessibility.<br />Visit Accessible Twitter<br />
    63. 63. what is being done?<br />YouTube allows users to add transcripts, annotations and captioning to their videos. This allows users with hearing disabilities to engage in ways they could not do before. There’s little to no excuse for not having accessible videos on YouTube considering how easy it is.<br />Easy YouTube Caption Creator by Accessify<br />
    64. 64. If it’s not accessible, why bother?<br />
    65. 65. If it’s not accessible, why bother?<br />Accessibility should not be an excuse not to engage in social media, rather it is a good reason to understand and use social media correctly and provide support. The platforms themselves should take the responsibility to make the sites more accessible. We as users should push for these changes. <br />
