Social Media Message Library

Welcome to the Social Media Message Library, a web-based resource developed by the Center for Public Health Readiness and Communication for staff in public health and health care agencies who wish to use social media platforms to communicate with stakeholders during public health emergencies. This resource features message templates for Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, and includes content relevant to the preparedness, response, and recovery phases of 23 different public health disaster scenarios. It also features distinct messages that target the unique needs of individuals with access and functional needs, including those with physical disabilities and communication difficulties. The messages have been reviewed by subject matter experts in hazard content areas and in public health risk communication. They were designed to help public information officers and other spokespersons create and deliver timely, accurate, and consistent information that will likely be needed during a public health emergency.

This project was sponsored by the Pennsylvania Department of Health, with funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
