Follow Us in practice
Attendees can open the feature and click or tap an item to open the webpage or see more details, depending on the item type.
Links to websites simply open in a new browser tab. Selecting a phone number on a mobile device gives the user the option to call or open the number in an app. Selecting an email on web or mobile opens the user's default mail application. Tapping addresses on web or mobile searches the address on Google Maps.
After attendees have had a chance to click around the event a bit, you can check out the Feature Comparison chart on the Metrics tab to see the number of Clicks for each social link.
To see all of the other data points outlined in the Export section of our Event Metrics article, export the Metrics.
Pro tip! 😎
Make sure that you are using the "share link" for any websites you want to add, if available, and not simply copying the hyperlink in your browser since it may be different.
