With Flockler, you can mix content from multiple social media channels and display social feeds in Walls, Grids, Carousels, and Slideshows.

You can add social media feeds to any website and digital service with a fully custom branding and look & feel.

You don’t pay per wall or widget – you get unlimited layouts in all Flockler’s subscription plans.

Here are four display layouts and design ideas for social media feeds:

Social Wall

A social wall layout is a perfect choice when you are looking to display social media posts from multiple channels. Most companies create and publish unique content to Instagram, TikTok, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and more - and displaying all content in one place drives a new audience to your social media channels, builds engagement, and increases the time spent on site.

In addition to websites and apps, a social wall is an excellent option for digital screens.

With Flockler’s easy-to-use editor, you can, for example, decide to hide caption texts and social media profiles and change colours.

Grid

Some of our customers find the wall layout awesome; some customers think it’s too messy. Therefore, a grid layout can be a good compromise for your team. A grid layout can display a mix of social media feeds from various channels, but the size of each element is fixed to keep the look and feel nice and neat.

Travel & hospitality industry clients often choose the grid layout – here’s how it looks on the Hapag-Lloyd Cruises website:

Carousel

A carousel feed of the latest social media posts is an excellent option for your homepage or product pages when you don’t have too much vertical space available. Your customers can flick through the content to left and right, and you can add a link below to visit a wall of content on another page, too. The carousel layout works best with visual content.

Here’s an example by Ripken Baseball displaying an Instagram feed on the website:

In addition to the homepage, the carousel can be a perfect fit for a news and media page. Here’s an example for USO:

And as previously, you can hide elements and just show the images. This carousel belongs to Sohome.nl:

Enabling the popup view for posts is a great option if you decide to hide elements. When the customer clicks any of the posts, a popup opens up with more details and caption text. In addition, webshops can make their Instagram feeds shoppable and tag related products.

Slideshow

For the past few years, digital screens have become popular among our customers at events and in the office and public spaces.

A stunning slideshow at the lobby or in a shop keeps visitors engaged with your content. Recently, we summarised the key reasons why event organisers need both social media walls and slideshows for a successful event.

You can edit the look and feel and use your colours and logos (of course!), but here’s an example by FIFA Museum:

The background can be an image, too. Check this fantastic example by Westover Connect:
