Displaying Moderated Social Media Content

This year, the event organizing team decided to incorporate social media marketing for making their event something people remembers for days.

Displaying Twitter posts on a digital screen using a Twitter Wall seemed the most appropriate idea.

Initially, displaying relevant and appropriate social media content seemed impossible to the team handling social media marketing as their event hashtag was fetching content from sources that were irrelevant for their award functions.

They found moderating the huge bulk of Twitter feeds really daunting. Separating their event-related tweets from those that were irrelevant for their event. Changing the hashtag was not an option as they had to stick to their hashtag, the award function being an annual one.

How Taggbox Was Useful?

What could be done? The event managing team at McGill was looking for a social media tool that could aggregate their live twitter feed smoothly and at the same time filter out the irrelevant content from their feeds being displayed on the Twitter wall.

But as soon as they realized the power of the moderation panel of Taggbox, they were relieved as now they could easily filter out the irrelevant content and prevent it from displaying at the event, both manually and automatically.

Guess what? Taggbox was their ultimate solution to boost audience engagement at their event. As attendees posted selfies and fun moments on Twitter using hashtag #Bravo2019, selected posts appeared on the live hashtag feed in real-time. The audience at the event loved seeing themselves up on the digital screen as their name was being announced for the awards. They loved how the waterfall theme further enhanced the way tweets were being displayed in an engaging manner to the audience.

“ Taggbox was really awesome for our event. It is really easy-to-use and amazingly visually attractive. It’s really prompt and robust backend support is a great help. My Director was truly happy about how well it turned out for our event. We are most likely to choose Taggbox again for our event next year.
