    From Howto.gov Blog:

    5 Myths About Social Media Accessibility

    Myth #1. People with disabilities do not use social media tools.


    Myth #2. Social media tools are completely accessible and can be used without limitation by anyone.


    Myth #3. When organizations and entities use social media to push content to their stakeholders, they are reaching everyone they need and want to reach.


    Myth #4. It is expensive and time-consuming to make social media content accessible.


    Myth #5. Compliance with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 guarantees social media accessibility and usability for individuals with disabilities.
