Tip of the Week

Sharing other people’s articles, quotes, or images can make for some of the most liked and retweeted content on any social media platform, but it’s important to give credit where it’s due. Just because you’ve found a photo on Google does not mean it’s fair game – that photo belongs to the person who took it.

Fortunately, there are some guidelines for sharing credit online:

  • To cite content on Twitter, include “via @username” within the same 140 characters. If you retweet someone but make a few edits to their original tweet, use “MT” instead of “RT.” (MT stands for modified tweet.)
  • On Facebook, using the Share feature is a great way to make sure the original author or artist gets credit. You can also tag the person or organization in your post to make sure the content links back.
  • Search Flickr Creative Commonsfor photos with a variety of different reuse regulations.
