Taggbox is a web-based platform where you can gather social media posts from Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and many more and then display them together in "feeds". You can create a social media feed using Taggbox within minutes and embed it in your event app!
⭐️ Keep in mind, while Taggbox offers a free trial, some features and functionality may cost extra. See their pricing page for more details.
Create a Taggbox feed
To create your social feed, head to taggbox.com, create a Widget account, and then follow these instructions from Taggbox to create a new Widget. Although the article is specifically about adding a Twitter feed, the process is very similar for other platforms like Instagram and LinkedIn.
When you're done adding Social Feeds, click the Publish button in the lower left corner of the screen, and select the Wix option.
In the window that appears, simply copy the URL found in step 05 so you can paste it into your Event App.
Embed your Taggbox feed in Webex Events
First, add a Web Link feature to your Webex Events event, edit it, and enter the URL that you copied in the previous step. Make sure you uncheck the Open link in external browser box so the feed embeds in your event's Web App. You don't need to use the Pass Data to URL checkbox.
⭐️ Keep in mind, you can change the feature name and icon to better reflect your social media feed! Click the Settings (⚙️) icon to change them.
Web App users will see your feed embedded in the Web App, so they can interact with each other with video, audio, or typed messages without leaving the Event App.
Mobile app users can tap the feature to launch the feed in their device's default browser.
Now you know all about embedding Taggbox in your event!
Let us know if you used this in your event and found a specific feature useful, or if we missed something that you think we should share with other customers.
