Social Media on the Public Screen
To be able to retrieve content from social media directly to the public screen, is something we have looked forward to for a long time, and in V8 this is made possible. Select a #hashtag or a @username on Instagram or Twitter, and your public screen will continuously be updated with new content from there.
Have looked forward to social posts
For a long time we have wanted to be able to retrieve content from social media to our screens, and now with V8 this is possible! This type of post is still considered beta, as it has not been testet sufficiently yet, but this is no reason not to make use of these posts.
Follow hashtags or usernames
As you create the post, you choose a specific #hashtag or a @username on Instagram or Twitter, and will then the freshest material from there will be displayed on your screen. Search options are somewhat different for Twitter and Instagram. Below follows a detailed description of the various possibilities.
You can enter one or more #hashtags and/or @usernames in the search-field. Separate search-words with spaces.
You can enter one or more #hashtags, @usernames and/or @@usernames in the search-field. Separate search-words with spaces.
Write <‑rt> with no space after #hashtag<‑rt> or @username<‑rt> if you want to hide retweets.
Write @@username if you want to display tweets from this user.
If you write two #hash#tags without a space in between, only tweets containing both hashtags will be displayed.
Automatic updates with new content
This is yet another way to get automatic updates with new content, both images and text, without needing to do anything at all after having added the post the first time.
