SKOBOT: The Social Media Live Streaming Application

skobot tv

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.
