The Facebook Family Gears Up for the Paralympic Games

The event will be held in Tokyo Aug. 24 through Sept. 5


The Paralympic Games begin in Tokyo Aug. 24, and Facebook teamed up with the International Paralympic Committee on initiatives across its family of applications and platforms.

A hub on Facebook will be accessible starting Aug. 23 by clicking the #Paralympics or #Tokyo2020 hashtags, and it will include: highlights from official broadcast partners; a Paralympic Games quiz; posts from friends; and team and athlete overviews.

An augmented reality effect on the @Paralympics Instagram account will enable people to mirror the movements of official Paralympics mascot Someity, and earn AR medals based on their performance.
