About Accessible Social

Accessible Social is a free resource and education hub that shares best practices for creating accessible and inclusive social media content.

The site was created by social media strategist Alexa Heinrich to fill a noticeable gap in the marketing and advertising industry. The goal of Accessible Social is to centralize information, resources, and best practices for creating social media content that is accessible to people living with disabilities. It is a living website that will keep growing and evolving as technology and social media continue to do the same. Hopefully, anyone who visits the site will feel empowered and prepared to create inclusive digital content that everyone can access and enjoy.

And yes, Accessible Social's mascot is a camel in honor of #camelCase. Their name is Carl after Carl Linnaeus, the zoologist who gave dromedary camels their binomial name. They also answer to Carla.

If you have any questions, concerns, or feedback about the site, please do not hesitate to contact Accessible Social directly.

While Accessible Social mostly focuses on social media, many of the practices outlined on the site are also applicable to other areas of marketing such as website management, email marketing, graphic design, and PDF creation.

There are dozens of social media platforms in existence, and not all of them will be covered by Accessible Social, unfortunately. The platforms discussed on this site are limited to the ones that Alexa, the curator of information for Accessible Social, has personal experience using.
