Whilst a social media wall might offer engagement and immediate event updates to your users, you can also create news articles to go into more depth on various topics. Futhermore, articles, as with all content on the platform, can be scheduled to publish/expire at specified times to help rotate the information at your event.
News article pages include a cascading discussion area, much like a Facebook or YouTube comments section. Every user’s first comment is moderated, to immediately eradicate the possibility of spam, though pending publication of that comment, subsequent comments go live immediately, subject to keywords. These could obviously be obscenities, though you may also want to flag certain topics to not be discussed at your event. Any comments including such words could be pulled for moderation or immediately deleted, according to your preference.
In addition, a “related articles” column could offer news articles posted by other users at your event – a mechanism to encourage event engagement by your users. As such, the more a user gets involved with your event, by creating articles and discussion topics, the more visible they’ll be. Each article includes a form through which the author can be contacted – again, enhancing the benefits of being an active delegate at your event.
The article content is an HTML friendly field on a simple form available through your dashboard – which means you could copy/paste articles from your own website, including any headers/footers, images or videos.
