An inspirational social wall on your website helps potential customers to view your products in a real-life context and discover how others like them use your services. Displaying a social wall with authentic content created by your company and your fans increases the dwell time and improves conversion rates on your website.
Flockler enables you to collate and embed social media feeds on any website. Set up social media feeds displaying content automatically or moderate and pick all the content one-by-one.
How do I set up a social wall?
Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to set up your social media wall:
- Create social media feeds
- Copy and paste an embed code on any digital service
1. Create social media feeds
Start by setting up a social media feed from Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and more. Connect your social media account and, for example, add hashtags and usernames on Twitter that you’d like your feed to display.
In addition to automated social media feeds, you can also store content for moderation, and search and pick content one-by-one.
2. Copy & paste an embed code on any digital service
Navigate to “Embed codes” after login to Flockler, copy and paste the code and embed on any digital service. The layout of the social wall is automatically optimised for mobile, tablet and desktop, and you can overwrite its styles to match the look & feel of your brand.
Here’s how a social media wall looks on a website:
#MyHeartGoesQloom community by Qloom, a Swiss cycling and mountain biking clothes retailer, is displayed on the homepage and on a separate community landing page. Product feedback and reviews from peers inspire customers and increase both dwell time and conversion rates on your site.
Even if your social media feeds are displaying content automatically on your website, you can always hide unwanted or inappropriate content from your social wall. Click the ‘Hide’ icon on the right:
There’s also an option to block content posted by a specific user or content mentioning certain keywords. You can set up blocked usernames and keywords by navigating to ‘Automated Feeds’ after login.
4 reasons why to add a social media wall on your website
Build engagement and drive traffic
Have you noticed the engagement going down on social channels? With tools like Flockler, it’s easy to identify the most influential customers and build a relationship with them to amplify the engagement and reach of social media content.

Improve conversions rates
When it comes to marketing and sales, word-of-mouth is always more efficient than direct ads. By adding authentic user-generated content to webshops, marketers can showcase the products in actual use and drive conversions.
