What is a Climb.social hub?

A social hub is one of the simplest and most powerful uses of Climb.social - a web page that displays specific content collected from social networks by your brand and those talking about it. 

It collects this social content based on user handles and hashtags that you’ve selected. The content can either be automatically published to your site, or to maintain control you can use our moderation controls.

Here are some typical examples:

  • I run a regular event and want to capture photos I’ve published on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook to my website, alongside those from attendees.
  • I’m running a #hashtag campaign and want an easy way to collect and display the highlights on my site.
  • I sell clothes & accessories online and would like a page to show off photos of customers wearing my products.
