In this week’s feature overview, I am going to go over customizing your social wall—including all the design options in our self-service builder, how to customize your social wall even further if you’re a developer or have one available, and finally, if you know what you want but are unsure how to get there, how to enlist our design team to custom build you a template.
This is going to focus strictly on the design side of things with our social wall product, Everwall.
Customizing your social wall with our self-service builder:
When building a wall using our self-service builder, the very last step is where all the magic happens and you get to make the wall perfectly match your event. It’s really easy to do, but there are quite a few options.
The first thing you’ll pick is the layout you want to use. We currently have 12 layouts to choose from, and they are all scaleable, so whether you have an old school projector that uses a 1024×768 resolution, or a 4k flat panel display, your social wall will look great.
- 7 layouts are specifically meant for landscape orientation
- 2 layouts are for portrait-oriented screens
- 2 are designed for TV applications and let you use […]
Ever since we announced our 2017 major update, we’ve received quite a few inquiries about the new language support in our social wall platform, Everwall. And today, I am going to talk a bit about them, and how you can take the most advantage of the new language support.
Social wall posts
The posts on your social wall can be in nearly any language. We support your typical left-to-right latin languages, like English and Spanish, but we also support right-to-left languages like Arabic. You do not need to change anything, we detect it automatically, and will display the post correctly for the language.
Your wall’s default language
When building your social wall, you can pick one of nine languages to use as your default language. The default language is what we use to display your post timestamps in, and what language we write the “join the conversation” text in your title bar.
The default languages we support are English, Arabic, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Russian and Spanish.
What if my event is in two languages?
In a lot of places around the world, there isn’t a single “primary” language. Instead, there are two languages used about equally. For example, in Canada, it’s quite common to have […]
Wow, it’s been a crazy year of behind the scenes development—and today we’re finally ready to talk about them!
So, what’s new?
New design options!
Twitter, Slack, Instagram, and moaarrr!
The second thing is the announcement of more content sources! You can now create your social walls using not just Twitter and Instagram, but also Slack! Slack is something we’ve been getting asked for practically since they launched.
We use Slack here, and it really is the perfect communication tool—but one thing we wanted to do from the beginning was to make it so you can show your Slack posts on screens in your office, and that actually leads me into the third announcement…. We now support ongoing walls, so you can show a wall on a screen at your office year round.

One of the decisions that you have to make when having a Tweetwall at your event is whether you would like to go self service or full service. The main factors in deciding which one comes down to how you want the Tweetwall to look, the support you need during the event, and how hands-off you want to be. Either way, Tweetwall is a great way to really hit home the social aspect of any kind of event, whether it be a wedding or large tech conference.
So, what’s the difference between a self-service and a full service Tweetwall?
You get a custom designed Tweetwall to perfectly match your event and branding. You can customize any aspect of it, from simple style changes, all the way up to fully custom transitions and interactions. There are some limits, but your dedicated account manager can help you work through any of them.
You get a dedicated account manager to help you every step of the way with any question that you may have before, during, and after your event. This person is always just a text, call, or email away and is there to help with anything you need, […]
