Linking to Social Media

Boise State University social media accounts are linked in the footer on most page templates.

If you would like to link to (and add icons for) your own department’s social media accounts, you can do so by filling out the social media fields in your site settings located at Settings > Site Settings.

There are individual fields for your X, Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, and LinkedIn accounts, which will automatically populate with social icons in your site’s footer when filled in.

Social Media and Accessibility

When sharing images through online platforms like X, Facebook, or Instagram, utilize the built-in accessibility features to add alternative text to images. When sharing media like videos through these platforms, ensure they include accurate captions.

This creates a better experience for users and also ensures that images and media shared in Boise State social feeds are accessible to those with low or no vision.
