Download as a PDF

This is the most recent NCSH quarterly social media campaign, which includes sample sexual health content that you can use and/or adapt for your digital and social media channels. We have formatted this content for Twitter, but it can be adapted for Facebook as well. The campaign contains two parts:

Part 1: Our theme for this campaign is Dating in a Digital World. It includes tweets relating to online dating generally, finding or creating safe and healthy communities online, safety tips for meeting someone in person, optimizing your online dating experience, and getting the sexual health talk started with a new partner.

Part 2: This features sample tweets in support of key health observances, holidays, and other cultural milestones that will be taking place over the next three months.

Here's a sample of what you can find in the full campaign: 

  • Nearly 45% of dating app users are looking for a long-term partner. Does that number surprise you? You can learn more about who is most likely to search for a partner online

  • According to @pewresearch 1 in 3 US adults have reported using a dating app but only about half have positive experiences – here’s how to make the best of online dating

  • Feeling a little anxious about meeting someone in person after you’ve connected with them online? Try planning a #virtualdate first.

  • Scammers specifically target older adults on dating apps. If a match asks for money—odds are, it’s a scam!

  • DYK young people prefer to receive information on love, sex, and relationships from a trusted adult? Learn how you can start conversations with @powertodecide. #TalkingIsPower
