I've had great luck with the mobile version of facebook. Granted, you
can't throw a shoe at someone or give people flowers. But you can check
e-mail, post and read statuses, read your notifications, write on
peoples' wallls, read notes people post, check out youtube videos
people post, read messages posted to groups, and maybe a few more
things. I find the normal facebook site very busy.
I can't answer to the rest of the social networking sites.

> Hi Athen folk
> I am guessing that this list is probably the best place to look for

> I frankly have little interest in social networks for myself, but
> they have become so popular as to be worth my learning about them.
> Also I think they could make a good topic for EASI Webinars. So,
> what I am really looking for is someone to help EASI put on a live
> Webinar discussing them and their accessibility problems or solutions.
> I am thinking of face book, twitter and my space. . . .
> How accessible is each for:
> 1 a screen reader user
> 2 a screen magnification user
> 3 people with various cognitive and learning disabilities?
> I assume they work ok for people who are deaf.
> If anyone is willing to help with a Webinar or knows someone else to
> recommend, please email me directly at
