The Brilliance of Elfsight’s Social Media Tools

In today's social media era, maintaining a connected presence across platforms is pivotal. Elfsight facilitates this by offering flawless integration of social media feeds directly into any website. But, what makes these integrations so transformative for your uSkinned for Umbraco site?

Unified Digital Presence

Seamlessly integrate feeds from platforms such as Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, allowing visitors on your website to engage with your most recent social updates without departing from your site, fostering a coherent digital experience.

Boosted Engagement

Live social media feeds invigorate your website, making it more dynamic — even when you don't have the time to write that new blog post. Fresh content from your social platforms can captivate visitors and increase the time they spend on your site.

Brand Authenticity

Showcasing real-time social interactions, be it comments, likes, or shares, can enhance your brand’s credibility and trust.

Visual Allure

Social media is often bursting with rich visual content, from photographs on Instagram to videos on YouTube. Incorporating these can enrich your website's visual appeal and interactivity.

Hassle-free Updates

With Elfsight’s social media integrations, your website content refreshes as you post on your social channels. This translates to fewer manual updates and consistent messaging for your audience.

Embedding Elfsight’s Social Media Widgets on you uSkinned Site Builder website


Navigate to Elfsight's platform and select the social media integration widget that aligns with your needs.

Tailor for Perfection

Personalise the widget to align with your website's branding, ensuring seamless integration.


Once tailored, generate the widget's unique embed code.


Access your uSkinned Site Builder CMS, find the desired page or blog post (or create a new one), and embed the widget code. The Embed Code component is the perfect tool for this task.

Review and Launch

Now, you can preview the website to make sure you're happy with the widget's functionality and integration. Once satisfied, "Save and publish", to make it live!

The features and integrations are superb! I think the biggest benefit is when we hand a site over to one of our customers - it provides them with control over their entire website.
