The benefits of using social media walls for news and entertainment

Photos and messages published by your audience on social media are a great way to spread the word about your brand. But it’s also a great opportunity to learn more about what your audience likes and to interact with it in real-time. Collecting everything on a social wall has some great benefits.



Connect with your audience
Get the audience to interact with your newspaper, news portal, TV or radio station through your social wall. Encourage people to join the conversation and ask questions on Twitter, Instagram, or any other social platforms you use.



Feature content from fans and supporters
Whether you hold a contest or just ask for the public’s opinion on a topic, you can use a social wall to feature their contributions on your website or even on a live display in the studio. A social wall is also the perfect place to give a little thanks to sponsors and supporters.



Share valuable feedback with your team
Display content published across multiple social platforms to make your team more aware of how their work is received. A social wall displayed at the office gives producers and editors insight into what the public likes and dislikes. They can adjust priorities accordingly to meet expectations better.



Increase your social media reach with hashtag campaigns
Hashtag campaigns are a powerful tool. When people post something on Twitter or Instagram using your hashtag, their message spreads to their friends and followers. This, in turn, creates more exposure and reach for your media enterprise.



Make your most valuable social content stand out
With a social wall, you can curate posts, and photos from your own social media channels or hashtags into one social feed that you can embed on your website or display on any digital screen. A social wall helps you make the most of your social media content.



Bundle social media conversations in one place
A social wall lets you aggregate all social media conversation in one place, making it easy for your audience to follow discussions in real-time. No need to switch between different networks. By embedding the social wall on your website, you don’t even lose traffic.

Why social media works for broadcasting services

According to a Nielsen report, 45% of consumers almost always use a second screen when watching TV, and a further 28% of consumers sometimes use another digital device simultaneously. Audiences clearly appreciate being able to view additional content related to the show they’re watching. A social media wall provides them with an easy way to engage with other viewers.
