    The event industry has transformed over the last few years, and we always want to make sure that we are bringing you the most innovative solutions for your events. However, with all changes sometimes we need to say goodbye to the old.   

    We have made the tough decision to retire the Social Wall product on December 31, 2022.   

    What do you need to do? 

    • You will no longer be able to set up or access Social Wall starting January 2023 
    • Remove any Social Wall web widgets you have on other websites 

    How can you display social media in your events and in Attendee Hub? 

    There are a number of different ways that you can use Attendee Hub Web and Event App to leverage social media. A few examples are: 

    • Using Custom Cards to link to social media sites 
    • Link social media on any content pages or custom pages 
    • Attendee's social media accounts can be linked to their profile 
    • Working with our partner Walls.IO 

    Walls.IO aggregates posts from social media and other sources and pushes them to a customizable website (social wall).  It can support up to 12 different sources including but not limited to, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and more.

    Walls.IO and Attendee Hub do not have an integration with one another, however once you've configured Walls.IO, you can insert the web link in Attendee Hub. This can be linked in a number of different areas including: 

    • Home Page Cards - You can create a single, or gallery web card in Attendee Hub with the web link saved to the card. You can upload an image to the card as a call to action for attendees to engage with your social wall.  
    • Notifications - You can use AH push notifications to promote your Social Wall. Once attendees click on the notification, they will be redirected to the event's social wall to browse and interact with the content. 
    • Pages - Hyperlink your Walls.IO weblink to any content pages 
    • Sessions - The Walls.IO weblink can be hyperlinked to a session description page or using the iFrame code, you can embed your social wall behind a custom code widget. 
    • Banners - Create a banner specifically for social wall engagement .
    • Event Website - Walls.IO can be embedded on your event website by copying the iFrame code from Walls.IO and then applying it to a code widget.
