Bring people together
If you are planning a social media app,
You need to consider the goals of your network. If your goal is in social
Media design is about bringing people together and closing the gaps that they need
to find a way for users to connect through your media. TikTok, for example
uses subtitles for its videos. Video is one of the best ways to connect
People and even the hearing impaired users can see video posts. The problem is
that they cannot hear what is going on in the recording. Fortunately, TikTok
Contains subtitles that allow users to view and follow videos
Words, even if they are hearing impaired. This inclusion makes their social
Network more accessible, even for those who traditionally couldn't
take part in it.
Image descriptions and alt
Text is useful
If you have users
It may be using the app you created due to issues through a screen reader
Alt images help you to understand what's going on with your eyesight. Social
Media networks with a lot of visual content benefit from the inclusion of alt
Descriptions for their pictures. LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter all have

Helping people get more out of their social media experience.
Inclusive design is that
If you look
In the world around us, more and more people are realizing the need for inclusivity in
our applications and society. We no longer pretend that people are born or
Fewer people develop disabilities. Social media design must reflect
that mindset if it is to stay relevant in the 21st century.
Social media should be there for everyone and for anything that opens its wonders
A wider audience should be encouraged.
