MSU Denver’s social media channels are a community created for current and prospective students, alumni, faculty and staff, supporters and friends.
We see each as a gathering place to celebrate the University, its people, programs and achievements, as well as a forum to share pertinent information. We absolutely love it when members of the Roadrunner family contribute to the conversation and encourage civil discussion.
That said, we do have some ground rules for posts/comments/tweets that help this community remain a safe and welcoming place for all members.
We reserve the right to delete posts/comments/tweets that:
Those who regularly violate these ground rules will be banned from future participation.
Required by the University:
Profile pictures distinguish your identity within your social media profiles. Profile pictures need to be consistent throughout all your social media profiles and should not change.
Per the State of Colorado, Facebook pages representing MSU Denver departments or programs also must prominently display the below statement, with the appropriate information filled in.
Where to include this required statement:
If you are looking for more information about [name of department/program], please visit [website URL here].
Facebook uses automatic alt text with object-recognition technology to provide a visual description of a photo for visually impaired people. You can replace this text to provide a better description of a photo. Keep in mind that this description will be read only if someone is using a screen reader to access Facebook. Alt text can only be edited on a computer or iOS device.
First, make sure your Twitter profile has the alt–text setting enabled. To do that, head to “Settings and Privacy,” then click on “Accessibility.”
From there, make sure the “Compose image descriptions” box is checked.
When you add photos to posts, you’ll see a black box that says “Add description” appear as soon as you choose the photo you want.
Fill that out whenever you write a tweet, and let people know what’s going on in the image or graphic.
It is also important to add a website link to posts with text-heavy images so that all information on the image is available.
When posting a photo to Instagram, once you get to the caption prompts (after editing your photo), click on “Advanced Settings” at the very bottom of the screen. From here, you can write alt text under the “Accessibility” option.
You’re also able to edit the Instagram photo after it’s posted by tapping the “…” in the upper right corner of the published photo, selecting “Edit” and “Aa Add Alt Text.”
