So TheTechSpy has been very busy recently….not only enjoying the rare UK sunshine while surveying the world of tech but we have also been building a website for you guys to enjoy all of our blogs in one place. It is nearly finished, but you can take a sneak peek over on TheSpyGroup
The first issue we came across when building the website was that we could not find a simple way to display our Facebook posts in one place. After some serious research, we came across a small team of individuals with a revolutionary product…. Tint.
Let’s start off with what Tint actually is and I think it is best explained in their own words;
“Tint is a simple, yet effective tool that lets anyone aggregate any social media feeds into one page and embed it anywhere they want.
You can aggregate from Facebook pages, Twitter accounts/hashtags, Instagram accounts/hashtags, Youtube channels, etc. and embed it beautifully into any website, WordPress, Tumblr, Wix, mobile apps, Facebook Pages, and more!”
I could not have put it better myself 😉
The TintUp Widget displays like Pinterest with a beautifully flowing board of tiles and is easy to embed into your website. With the likes of Squarespace and Wix allowing it, you just need to create a login with Tint and create the code which is a piece of cake. Once in your chosen website management board, you embed the code by simply copying and pasting it from Tint.
Tint allows you to customise your feed from within the admin pages with various themes, colours and options and is supported by some of the biggest names in website creation;
The product is quite versatile and interestingly the guys at Tint also suggest using the product on a stand at an exhibition. People at the show could have their message on the board just by using the designated hashtag with the stand having full moderation control over what is posted.
One of the biggest positives for using this widget is the support you get from Tint. They pointed us in the right direction and helped us to create the product we wanted. Tim ( The CEO) was particularly helpful with the whole process and shows a great interest in his customers whether they are paying or not which is very rare (Thanks Tim). They are a very small team but seem to cover every hour needed by the client over email and even chat.
Here is one of our Tint boards displaying feeds from our sister company TheCarSpy
Overall this is a great widget! Easy to use, customise and moderate and works with all the big names of website creation. Amateurs and professionals alike can use this product and both will get an equally slick operation. Of course the product in our opinion needs a few little tweaks, for example it is a little slow delivering embedded code and could do with an option to be able to choose what part of your title is in bold, but saying this it hasn’t stopped us from using them across our website and we believe this will only improve.
If you are looking for an aggregated social media feed to impress on your website, take a look at Tint, they get a thumbs up from TheTechSpy.
