Given the right tools and setup, social media can be an awesome way to engage your tribe at your live event. It can lower the distance between provider and customer, and help to drastically increase value co-creation. Imagine attendees sharing Instagram photos, tweeting at pre-defined hashtags… and you hosting this aggregation on your webpage or on Facebook… the possibilities are kinda inspiring when you have tools that make the execution flawless and beautiful. It’s really pretty cool when your users do a lot of the content creation for you! Postano recently posted a blog with examples of companies using their social media aggregation tool to great effect; check it out!

Robin Good: Postano is a social media content aggregation and curation platform that can be integrated in your web site or Facebook page.

Through its internal dashboard it can be set to agregate coming from any of your social media channels. From WordPress or Tumblr blogs to Facebook Pages, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest accounts, Postano offers a comprehensive array of social media sources to tap into. Additionally you can add any RSS feeds that may be relevant to you.

Postano allows you to pick and select which content you want to publish and how you want to it look and appear. Your curated channel can be finally integrated as a full embed in your website and/or added as a tab to your Facebook page.

One great key feature available as a WordPress plugin but also usable with any other publishing platform allows for all of the content and links “embedded” in your site via POstano to be also fully indexed by standard search engines.
