Can I talk about being a part of the Xbox Ambassadors on Twitter, Facebook, or YouTube?

Absolutely. Microsoft wants you to proudly declare your love for all things Xbox on all social media. All Microsoft wants you to do is to include #XboxAmbassadors when displaying your social media content.

Please note: if you are sharing content on YouTube on behalf of Xbox Ambassadors, Microsoft would prefer you use the following statement:

“I am a member of the Xbox Ambassadors Program and can earn different rewards and recognition for my involvement. To learn more about what it means to be an Xbox Ambassador, visit”
