A social wall is a great tool to promote your event. But Social Media displays have several other amazing features that can be interesting for you as well. Here are the 7 best kept secrets regarding Social Media Walls.
7 Social Media Wall Secrets
As you might know, a social wall is great to generate exposure for your brand and entertain & engage your audience. Those advantages are often mentioned as great reasons to set up your own wall.
But, do you already know about these 7 interesting features?
1. Embed a social wall on your website
You don’t need a big screen, event or lobby to show off your social media wall. A website is enough. Just embed your social media wall on your website and impress your visitors. They will be motivated to join in on the online conversation.
2. Set it and forget it
Organisers will love to hear this: a Social Media Wall doesn’t require any attention during the event. Just set up your wall once. When the event starts, you can focus on other things and let the software do its work.
3. Support multiple Social Media networks
Not only content from Twitter can appear on a Social Media Wall. Posts and pictures from other social channels like Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Flickr can also be collected on your wall.
4. Visualize content
Social Media Walls don’t only display text-based posts. Pictures from visual media like Instagram make a wall more entertaining. Our own social media wall focuses on pictures and visualizes tweets in an appealing way.
5. Showcase your sponsors
A Social Wall offers a great opportunity to showcase your sponsors. Most walls can be customised with a sponsor area, where you can display sponsor logos.
The sponsors of Planet Shark, for example, were really visible with their custom banner on this Twitter Wall.
6. Completely customize the design
Most Social Media Walls can be customized. They can be tailored to display your sponsors, or you can get a whole new design. For example, we worked with the European Commission to build a Twitter Wall themed to their conference branding:
Of course, Social Media Walls can also be customized with advanced filtering options, to prevent unwanted posts from popping up in your show.
7. Survives bad internet connections
Even a flaky internet connection won’t ruin your Social Media Wall. Lost your connection? A good social wall won’t crash and will display posts that were already loaded. As soon as you’re back online, new posts will automatically be displayed.
A Social Media Wall for your event / business
Advanced Social Media Walls are cleverly designed and developed. Their purpose? To create as much buzz as possible for your event or brand.
