Guidance for referencing social media can be found here.

If you include an actual screenshot within an assignment, you would label it as:

Fig.1 Online profile of [insert name here] 

(Source: use the referencing advice on the web page above. The image should be held at a specific url. Or the image would be labelled as composite of images of [insert name] taken from their profiles on Facebook, Whatsapp etc.)

Attached are some recent articles that include examples of screenshots and images.These illustrate how you'd label the screenshot using "Fig 1."
