Social Media Tips and Resources

Social media best practice guidelines are always changing, sometimes due to updates in software, including new features (e.g. live video feeds, or the new care emoji) or changes to the policies of providers (like hiding the number of likes on instagram and facebook).

There are many blogs and websites that can help you keep up to date with new features, and more importantly how to use them!
