Content Overview:

Social media use has demonstrated increased mental well-being and social capital for people with disabilities.  However, usability issues with social media user interfaces (UIs) can often be barriers that deter participation of people with disabilities.  In this study, we applied usability testing to investigate the usability of five social media apps (Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Snapchat, and Tumblr) for people with disabilities, with the goal of identifying key UI features that facilitate/impede user performance and experience.
