Written evidence submitted by Mencap (ONL0018)

[in reference to the suitability of social media providers’ community guidelines]

Mencap commented on this suggesting that the Social Media providers should consult with people with a learning disability to see if their community guidelines and terms of references are accessible. The examples we have seen would leave many people with a learning disability struggling to understand them due to complicated words, jargon and abstract language.
