The social feed is the central place for attendees to interact during an event or year-round.
Make site-wide connections
Unlike session chats, the social feed is not tied to a specific piece of content. This means it’s a great place to interact between sessions or to have conversations related to the overall platform and event.
The feed looks and acts similarly to other social media sites. Anyone can create a post, Like a post, add comments, and reply to comments. Posts include text, images, and the ability to tag other users. Learn how to post in the social feed.
Global and group feeds
There are two types of feeds:
The Global feed is the main place for conversation. Anyone can see and create posts.
If your platform uses groups, each one can have their own Group feed. Only members of a group can access it. For example, a page called the Idaho Chapter Feed is only for those members.
Attendees can edit or delete their own posts. As a site admin, you have control of all content. You can delete any post.
Increasing social feed engagement
To make sure attendees can easily find the social feed, we recommend locating it prominently in your navigation.
You can also advertise the social feed from your home page or another page. Our Popular Social Posts module lets you feature posts from the social feed and/or forum. Clicking a post sends users directly to the conversation.
Planning a social feed for a multi-site platform
You can add the social feed to multiple sites within your Single Destination Platform. But note that the content will be shared across sites. If someone posts to a feed on one site, people on the other site see it too. Attendees are only restricted from viewing content if they aren’t part of a group.
