Creating a Social Media App with the Social Wall Feature

Do you want to make an app like a social network where people can share, like, and comment? With the Social Wall feature on ESA’s app builder, you can create a place for users to connect just like on Twitter or Facebook. Let’s get started:

Step 1: Start Your App

  • Go to the ESA website and log in.
  • Create a new app or choose one you already made.
  • If you’re making a new app, give it a name and create it.

Step 2: Add Social Wall

  • Click on “Features” in the menu.
  • Find “Social Wall” and click “Add feature.”

Step 3: Customize Social Wall

  • Give your page a name and pick an icon.
  • Change how it looks by choosing a different style.

Step 4: Set Up Social Wall

  • Go to “Settings” and put in your email as the admin.
  • Reports from users will be sent to this email.
  • Choose “card” design or “list” if you like.
  • Set how much of a message people can see before it’s cut off.
  • Choose where the share options will show.
  • If you turn on post moderation, you’ll need to approve posts before they’re shown.
  • Click “save” to save your choices.

Step 5: Background Design

  • If you want, you can use your own picture for the app’s background.
  • You can choose different pictures for the app’s portrait and landscape views.
  • Click “save” when you’re done, or you can stick with our default white background.

Step 6: Create a Post

  • Go to “Posts” and click the plus button.
  • Give your post a title.
  • If you want, you can schedule a post for later.
  • Write your post and add a picture if you like.
  • Click save, and your post will be up.

Step 7: See Your App

  • Click “see changes” to look at your app on a real device.
  • Some links may not work here, but they will on actual devices.
  • If you want, you can make a file of your app to share.
