Skobot is social media live streaming application built to display social media content that is generated during live events. Skobot was designed for a “lean back” experience, visually optimized for display on large screens and viewable from a distance. Skobot was initially conceived and built for displaying social media content from guests at wedding parties, and has since then been used to power social media engagement during a variety of functions:
- Parties: Displaying social media content created by guests during events
- Conferences: Accompanying presentations to power crowd participation and Q&A
- Breaking news: Following live coverage of news across all major public social feeds
Skobot is a minimalist utility: a user only has to set a hashtag and then Skobot automatically displays in real time any appropriately tagged public content from Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube as it is published to the web. A preference bar is included to allow for individual platforms to be turned on or off.
