  • The separate location pages for each storefront can be connected to a larger page that is your main brand page.

  • On the main page, there will be a locations tab that allows users to see the store location nearest to them.

● You are able to edit which posts from your main brand page are displayed on your location pages. Your options include:

  • Always show posts from the brand page to location pages.

  • Show posts from the brand page only when location pages don't publish their own posts.

  • Never show posts from your brand page to locations.

● Vidpresso works with TV broadcasters and content publishers to make their online videos more interactive with on-screen social media polling and comments, graphics and live broadcasting integrated with Facebook, YouTube, Periscope and more.


● Facebook's apparent goal is to give independent social media creators the same tools traditional outlets use so that they are able to make authentic, but polished videos for Facebook.

  • The platforms want semi-professional creators to be able to broadcast exciting videos with graphics, comments, and polls that can compete with "big video" but still feel natural.
