The Presentation View for your Social Wall is what displays all of your aggregated posts and images from your participants in one large-format presentation display that your entire crowd sees at your event. Your crowd gets a constant stream of messages, photos, and insight from your participants' posts at your event.
The Presentation View will continuously cycle all of your published posts and images in the layout you specified earlier in the Experience Wizard when first creating the Social Wall. You can also change the layout of the posts via the Presentation View window by locating the Settings button with a gear icon. Upon clicking on this button, the View Settings for the Presentation View will pop up.
The Presentation View also automatically displays the instructions for how your crowd can post to your Social Wall by including the website URL and the #hashtags or @usernames to use on Twitter and Instagram.
Launch the Presentation View
To open the Presentation View, click on the large purple Presentation View button under the Crowd Views section on the Experience Dashboard. The Presentation View will open up in a new browser tab, which can be detached and then dragged to the projector desktop of your computer.

Since we haven't started our Social Wall yet, the Presentation View displays, "Beginning soon." Once we start our Social Wall, the Presentation View will update to show posts once it aggregates them.
Set the Presentation View to Full-Screen Mode
After opening the Presentation View in a new browser tab, you can detach the browser tab and move it to an Extended Desktop on your computer that is connected to an external projector, HDTV, or another display source - similar to setting up a PowerPoint or Keynote presentation. These are often connected to your computer's external display ports via HDMI, DVI, VGA, etc.
Once the external device is showing the Presentation View's browser tab, click the Full-Screen button in the lower-right-hand corner of the Presentation View. This will put the Presentation View into full-screen presentation mode.

Your audience can now see the URL and instructions for posting to your Social Wall at the bottom of the Presentation View. Once they've posted, they can now see their posts populate on the Presentation View and follow along with the buzz of your event! The Presentation View will show appropriate messages based on if your Social Wall is in the Ready state, the Live state, or the Finished state.
Now that you know how to open the Participant View and launch the Presentation View, we're ready to actually start your Social Wall and post to it. This is the fun part! Go to the next step - Starting and Pausing the Social Wall.
