Create Interactive Social Media Posts using Oracle Social Cloud


Right contents in your social media fan pages, create a big impact in engaging your targeted audience. Though creating highly engaging contents is an art by itself, having right tools to build them is another major challenge / limitation to most of the Organizations.

In the last post on Oracle Social Cloud we discussed about how Oracle Social Cloud would help you to cut through the noise and hear what you like to hear that are of your interests like your brands, products, services, competition etc.. In this post I like to highlight some of the exciting features in Oracle Social Cloud that enables you to create highly engaging contents that can be published in your Organization Facebook page in a matter of few minutes ….

In its simplest form Oracle Social Cloud makes it possible to create interactive contents and publish in Facebook using “Views” section. The views module is supported by a WYSIWYG editor with rich controls to plug in various elements that would help you to build a highly engaging Social media content. The controls are grouped under five modules as Basic, Interactive, Feeds, Forms and Custom. The summary of various controls available under these buckets are presented in the below screenshot.

As you see above the kind of controls that you have under various buckets is quiet rich and one or more controls can be used to build an interactive post by simple drag and drop of this Control to the editor.

Let us dig into the usage of Controls with a very simple example. Assume you would like to run a Coupon Campaign where you want to collect user persona details of your Organization’s interest in exchange for a coupon that they can reimburse in a prominent e-commerce website.

You can do in simple 3 easy steps.

Step 1, drag the form module from “Basic” section in the editor

Step 2, expand the controls section to edit the control. As a first step build a form using WYSIWYG editor collecting user persona details of your interest. As you see below you have the flexibility to capture any kind of information using custom fields that are available in the form editor

Step 3, go to the images section to add an image that appears before the form is presented, here a simple compelling image which displays the intended message of “Click here for $10 coupon” and an image that says a “Thank you message” on user submitting the form is used.

That is that you have to do to create this campaign. Use the Preview button to view how it appears and publish it in your Facebook account.  All form data submitted by users can be downloaded later from the same control in form of a simple CSV …
