The ability to reach large audiences is a huge advantage of social networks and these social networking sites are becoming increasingly visual. Content shared with interactive thumbnails achieve exponentially higher engagement levels than just plain links, which has the potential to open the doors for your business to find more leads that want your products or services. 

VIDIZMO allows you to share your Portal's content (video, audio, image, document, playlist, collection, survey, and collection) in an interactive way on social media platforms such as Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter, and LinkedIn in such a way that social media users can watch/view content directly from the social sharing sites rather than being sent to the VIDIZMO portal.

Before you start

  • Manager+ portal users can enable enhanced view while sharing media over social sites. 
  • Social Media platforms only allow interactive sharing from those sources which are secure using HTTPS. Therefore, your Portal should be configured to use HTTPS in order to share media successfully on social sites. 
  • The content required to be shared on social media platforms should have anonymous access.
