Quoting a Facebook page or a flow in general

University West uses both a Facebook page ( and a Twitter feed ( to communicate.


Refer to post on social media
The author's alias or surname, first name (Date). Title. [Facebook] Available: URL. [Access Date]

Following how you according to Harvard refer to a web resource. Consider for example to reference the alias person or organization uses and not to the "real name". This is to make it easier to find the post, as always you write references to make it easy to find them. It is also good that in square brackets add if it's from Twitter, Facebook, or some other place.

The author's surname, first name (year of publication). Name of the app (version number) .[App] Available: URL [Access Date]

Start with a person or an organization as a writer. After that the year, the name of the app and in brackets the version number. Continue to inside square brackets write that it is an app (just as you above write that it is from Facebook or an electronic resource). After that type where you have downloaded the app. The data can be found in eg iTunes if you seek out the app and look for information.
