CDC’s Guide to Writing for Social Media
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. (2012). CDC’s Guide to Writing for Social Media.
Emergency planners can use the guidance in this document to: learn about social media; understand their audiences; write for Facebook and Twitter; develop text messages; and base social media on existing web page content. Sample “hands-on” activities are provided, where readers have the chance to revise draft messages. A checklist, glossary, and links to helpful resources are also included. While some material is dated, the guide contains foundational guidance for emergency planners.
