Abstract This systematic review investigates the intersection of online social networks and individuals with intellectual disabilities, with a focus on identifying the specific platforms and features used, exploring their impact on social inclusion and interaction, and offering practical recommendations for improved support mechanisms. The study reveals that individuals with intellectual disabilities commonly engage with mainstream social networking platforms. These platforms facilitate social connections, community building, and increased opportunities for participation. Additionally, individuals with intellectual disabilities benefit from empowerment through self-expression, as evidenced by the positive sharing of achievements and talents. The recommendations derived from the systematic review emphasize practical strategies to enhance support mechanisms, including improving accessibility features, implementing user-friendly design, promoting privacy controls, and providing educational resources. In conclusion, "Virtual Bonds" contributes valuable insights into the dynamic relationship between individuals with intellectual disabilities and online social networks. The findings underscore the positive impact of these platforms on social inclusion, while the recommendations provide actionable steps to optimize accessibility and support mechanisms, ultimately enhancing the digital experience for individuals with intellectual disabilities.
