Kentico Social Feed Web Part
By: Laura Frese
Utilizing social media is important for business marketing and can increase traffic to your website. In addition, social media marketing can improve brand loyalty, increase brand recognition, decrease marketing costs, and increase your search engine ranking.
Most of the social media companies provide an easy way to show feed from their sites using modular widgets. However, these widgets may be difficult to customize to fit your style desires. iMedia’s Social Feed Integration web part allows you to pull social feed from Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, as well as videos from your YouTube playlist, and integrate them into your site any way you see fit! Check out a demo at iMedia Buzz.
By showing your social media feed in your Kentico CMS website, your site visitors can stay up to date with everything that is happening within your company all in one place. You can also gain additional followers and loyalties by linking back to your social media pages from your website.
Included with iMedia’s Social Feed Integration web part download are instructions on how to install and configure the web part, and how to obtain the necessary user ID’s, access tokens, and secrets. You can download the webpart from the Kentico Marketplace.
