About the Social Media App

The Social Media application is built using the Application Development Framework (ADF).


The Social Media application provides a tool to allow your organizations social media live data streams from your Facebook Pages, your Instagram posts, your Twitter accounts and targeted Twitter keyword searches, your YouTube Channels and your WordPress blog posts to be combined in various configurations to be displayed in one or in various strategic locations on your CommonSpot site.

  • Any number of supported social media accounts can be setup in the app
  • Ready-made render handlers are provided to display your social media streams and can be updated to display your streams in any way you see fit
  • Posts can be moderated/filtered using either a blacklist or a whitelist
  • Social media feeds can be pulled on a regular basis and cached for display purposes to avoid exceeding API quota limits
