Collections

Collections are a powerful way to group your posts together. Once you've grouped your posts, you can then embed this collection of posts on a specific page on your website, or use our SDKs and APIs to access content from a specific collection.

Why Use Collections

  1. Create a collection of posts from customers who Tweet favorable comments about your brand, and put this on your product page.
  2. Create a collection of posts from people who use a specific #hashtag, and create a social hub around this #hashtag
  3. Create a collection of user-generated photos of your product, and embed this collection of content on your product shopping cart.
  4. Create a collection of posts from your CEO, and display this content on your About Us page.
The possibilities are endless!

By default, we display a navigation pane for each social hub, and each social hub defaults to showing the "All" tab. These default behaviors can be changed, and you can learn more about how to do so here.

To create a collection, follow these steps:
  1. From your TwineSocial administration page, choose Campaigns in the left navigation pane.

    Add Posts to a Collection with Rules

    You can also create rules to automatically add content to a collection that meets a specific criteria: from a particular user, from a particular network, or with a specific hashtag. Learn how to configure rules here.
