Sign in to Tagboard on Your Computer

  1. Go to www.Tagboard.com and click the "Sign in" button

1. Create a tagboard

  • Go to the top right hand corner and click on the "+" button to create a tagboard.​

#Hashtag - Choose a hashtag that you want to automatically aggregate content into your "Latest tab" of your tagboard. This initial hashtag will also show on your live displays.

Description - Enter a description of what social media topics you will add to this tagboard, and where you will use this tagboard (e.g. 5pm news, web embed, breaking news, etc).

Account - If available, choose your station's Tagboard Account (e.g. KING 5 News)

• You're ready! Press the blue "Create tagboard" button

2. Produce your story

There are three ways to produce a social story, and you can do it either way throughout this step:

Latest

You can produce your story from the Latest tab, which pulls in all the public content from Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Vine, Google+ and Flickr with the main tagboard hashtag (your Tagboard title) and secondary hashtags if you are using those.

To approve the posts you want to re-display, just click the "Feature post" button at the top of the post. Once the post is featured you'll see a confirmation with a green checkmark.
