The Wikimedia Foundation's Communications department manages several social media accounts for the Foundation and Wikipedia. We are actively or semi-actively posting on the following:
- Facebook: Wikipedia and Wikimedia Foundation
- Twitter: @wikipedia and @wikimedia
- Instagram: Wikipedia and Wikimedia Foundation
- YouTube: Wikipedia
Social media requests for consideration on Wikimedia Foundation and Wikipedia accounts can be submitted using this Google form. We will consider these requests based on whether they are relevant and compelling to wide audiences, and their ability to push forward our strategic goals. We welcome compelling stories and visuals that highlight the movement and our priorities, staff thought leadership, our advocacy efforts and volunteer champions, as well as initiatives that showcase local and newsworthy issues.
The Wikimedia Foundation's official social media accounts are managed by the Communications department. As of December 2019, those pertaining to the Wikimedia Foundation are managed by the Communications team within the department, with the primary contact being Aubrie Johnson. Those pertaining to Wikipedia or another Wikimedia project are managed by the Audience Engagement team, with the primary contact being Ed Erhart.
