Foster engagement using the social wall

Give attendees a social feed that acts as your event’s private social network. 

Explore the benefits of a social wall 

Allow your attendees to share their event experience

Attendees post and connect through pictures, comments, and “likes” in the Event App’s web experience and Mobile App. 

Showcase attendee content in real-time through live display

Connect your event app with live display to show social wall activity in real-time and take engagement to another level. 

Quantify attendee engagement with social wall metrics

Review data points collected from the social wall including clicks, posts created, likes, comments, and reports. 

How it works

Once you add the Social Wall feature and publish your Event App, attendees, speakers, sponsors, and exhibitors can start posting text and pictures and commenting on and liking others’ posts! When someone makes a new Social Wall post, an indicator appears in the feature list next to the Wall feature. 

Like most social feeds, as content is published, users scroll through and like posts, make comments, and even report the post if it’s problematic. 

Frequently Asked Questions

When users post images to the Wall, they’re prompted to crop it to a square before posting. Accepted formats are PNG, JPG, and JPEG with no size limits. 

Yes! We encourage you to create new user profiles for each person as needed. Sponsors, exhibitors, or speakers will want to engage their experience and add to the overall experience. You can also create official accounts by using a company or organization name and logo in the profile. 

As people make Social Wall posts, admins can delete reported posts and review who’s interacting with each post. Click the Settings (⋯) icon next to a single post to export or delete it. Select multiple posts to export or delete all of them at once. 

You’ll receive engagement metrics from the Social Wall including clicks, posts created, likes, comments, and reports. 

Start posting yourself. It’s best practice for your team to post some photos or ask some questions before the event to quick off the Social Wall engagement. 

Targeted discussion boards – To make the Wall feature a targeted discussion board, simply rename it accordingly. We’ve seen the Wall renamed Share Media, Photo Contest, Discussion Board, and Ride Share — to name a few examples. You can even make it visible to only certain attendee Groups. 

Live Display – We love this one! Pair your Event App with Live Display to show Wall activity in real-time throughout your in-person event.
