Manually adding posts to a Flow or Collection

Flowics allows you to manually add external posts from social media to any Flow or Collection.

Keep in mind

  • This is especially helpful in those cases when you have already found and identified relevant social content externally (maybe on Twitter.com & Facebook.com), which you want to display.
  • This means you do not necessarily always need to have a Flow with filters created for displaying social content through our Widgets or Data Sources.
