Social networking sites have become important channels for pushing content. We all spend time putting together nice 140-characters on Twitter, share insightful information on Facebook, publish videos on Youtube or even curate and pin multimedia on Pinterest. The challenge is that overtime, there is so much content that gets lost and buried in our social accounts. For instance members following you on a specific channel might miss other great content you’ve shared on another channel. One way to reclaim these content and aggregate it in a central place is to set up a social wall on your site. Social walls are becoming increasingly popular amongst site owners who want to display and share their social activities and content from multiple sources including social services into a single HTML page.
Here’s our list of top three most popular social wall scripts:
