Social media is an essential tool for communicating particle-physics results to a wide audience. This
presentation will explore how the nature of social media platforms has impacted the content being
shared across them, and the subsequent effect this has on the user experience. The ATLAS
Experiment at the LHC has adapted its communication strategy to match this social media evolution, producing
content specifically targeting this emerging audience. The success of this approach is examined and
the effect on user experience is evaluated.
