Social Media information
Be aware of the "social media" question on Form DS-160, the standard online application used by individuals to apply for a nonimmigrant visa. The item requires applicants to indicate the social media platforms that they have used during the five years preceding their visa application, and to provide any identifiers or handles they used on those platforms. The U.S. Department of State also added a similar item to the Form DS-260 immigrant visa application. See NAFSA's page on the DS-160 social media question or the Department of State FAQ document for additional information.
