ShakeOut Social Media


Social media is a quick way to send a message out to your audiences so that they can get tips to prepare to survive and recover from the next damaging earthquake. On this page are links to important accounts to follow and also copy-and-paste content you can use for your social media accounts.

For all still and animated images associated with content, you can right-click and save-as (PC and Mac) or also drag to your desktop (Mac). If on mobile, you can press the image (some devices may require "force touch") and save it to your library. You may also be able to select it and post, tweet, or gram it immediately depending on your device's options.
