The Montclair State Social Feed plugin provides a simple and efficient way for pages to display content from Twitter and Facebook.
Using the plugin gives us a couple of benefits over using the standard Twitter and Facebook widgets:
- Faster pages. Our server takes care of retrieving data from each feed and turning it into HTML – saving time and resources for users on mobile devices.
- Fault tolerance. Our server caches the data it retrieves, making it able to keep displaying feed data when the services have outages.
- Mobile compatibility. The feeds are output using our site’s native styles, making them much better at adapting to mobile devices than the standard Facebook and Twitter widgets.
- Accessibility. Since the browser only receives regular-old HTML in the end we can guarantee our social media feeds remain highly accessible for users with disabilities.
