When do I include a retrieval date?
The APA Publication Manual (APA, 2019) suggests including a retrieval date for those sources whose content is designed to change and/or updates frequently, and the page itself is unarchived (p. 290). Such sources include dictionary entries, Facebook and other social media pages, maps on Google Maps, etc. (APA, 2019, p. 290).
