How it Works
User Generated Content
Our gallery widget allows your customers to upload their photos directly from your store site. Socialphotos also integrates with Instagram and fetches your Instagram posts, tagged photos, and hashtags.
You curate user generated photos by adding them to different galleries. For example, most of our users have a page gallery and a products gallery. A page gallery on your main page can showcase featured customers. Products gallery can showcase customers using your products. You can also have page galleries for your 'About Us' page, your blogs, and throughout your website.
With page galleries, you add and remove customer photos into that gallery. You can install a page gallery on any page on your website. Installing a page gallery is as simple as adding one line of code. It looks something like this:
<div class="socialphotos-com-gallery slpht-clearfix" data-id="1234"></div>
Product gallery is slightly different than page gallery since you typically have one styling layout that is used for all products. You also do not want to be installing a gallery for each individual product. For showcasing customer photos on your products page, you tag specific products and those photos will get displayed on that product's page. For example, a customer bought a diamond ring and tags you on Instagram. You then tag that photo with 'Diamond Ring' and that customer's photo will show up on your Diamond Ring's page. Socialphotos does this automatically by integrating with your e-commerce platform and syncing with your list of products. Our platform knows how to display customer photos depending on the products that you tag it with. Installing a product gallery is as simple as adding one line of code. It looks something like this:
<div class="socialphotos-com-gallery slpht-clearfix" data-uid="diamond-store.myshopify.com"></div>
After connecting your Instagram, we will automatically get your Instagram posts, tagged photos, and tracked hashtags. We use the latest Instagram Graph API version and keeps things up to date.
Here is an example of a page gallery on their front page from one of our customers, Impressions Vanity.
