Glisser allows the use of social media sites such as Twitter to be integrated into your event. Hashtags are commonplace at live events now, as online buzz is crucial in creating that all-important FOMO, and boosting attendance at the next event. However, events don’t trend unless you encourage your audience to tweet, and a live Twitter Wall or Twitter Feed is one of the best ways to make that happen.

Included in every Glisser account is an integrated social media wall, which can be brought up on the main screen, during or after each presentation, or on secondary screens around the venue. Meanwhile, your audiences can access the social media feed from their devices, and connect a Twitter account to post directly from Glisser (Instagram coming soon).

As simple as selecting your hashtag

The Glisser Social Wall can be switched on with one click, and your own hashtag added to determine the tweets it shows. You then have total control over when and where you display your Tweet Wall to maximise its impact.

Presentations

  1. Click on presentations tab on the left hand of your screen.
  2. Click on the presentation you would like to amend and select edit presentation.
  3. On the right hand of your screen, click on social media. From the drop down menu click on the twitter bar to turn the option on. Equally, to turn off twitter then click on the twitter bar once again. As a rule of thumb, orange means twitter is active, grey means twitter is inactive
  4. You must then decide on an appropriate hashtag. We recommend using the same as your event URL, or something short and snappy that is relevant to your event.
  5. Your hashtag will be relevant for that specific presentation.

Encourage slides to be shared via a live Social Media feed

Audience members can view the Social Media feed in the Glisser web-app, even if they don’t have the relevant account. If they do, then they can connect it to Glisser and share insights from the presentation or event, appended with your event hashtag. Turn your audience into your content promoters, and get that session trending.

Display Your Social Wall

To bring up the social wall at any time during, before, or after your presentation, simply select 4 on your keyboard, or select the social tab on the bottom bar.

There are three view types for your social feed, which you can alternate between using the selectors in the top left of the screen, or using the space bar on your keyboard:

  • Grid view, showing tweets and posts with images and text.
  • Single card view, showing just one tweet or post at a time, changing every five seconds.
  • Image view, showing just image tweets or posts without text (below).

Social Media Wall moderation

We know that while you want social buzz, the last thing you want is someone hijacking your hashtag and filling your Social Media Wall with nonsense. With Glisser, our Social Media Wall and feed can be moderated, with unwanted content blocked and archived, giving you full control of your audience content.

One place for engagement analytics

Glisser pulls through all the Social Media activity around your event, based upon your hashtag, to give you all your Social Media data in the same place as your other audience interactions – questions, polls, feedback, and presentation engagement stats. One portal providing a powerful overview of audience engagement – a key indicator of event ROI.

Interact with a Presentation

The presenter will give you a unique Glisser URL to enter into your browser to access the presentation. You can use any web-connected device to interact with the presentation (phone, tablet, computer).

Using Audience Q&A

As a presenter, you have the option to include an audience question wall (Q&A Feature), which audience members can post questions to from their devices. You can choose to either moderate thee questions, or allow audience members to post directly to the question wall. Using the Q&A feature encourages people in your audience to ask questions who wouldn't have necessarily had the courage to otherwise.
