Social Stream

Social Stream was built as a way for Gustavus to aggregated social media accounts all across campus to provide a quick and easy place for everyone to see what was happening on campus. The system currently supports Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Flickr, YouTube, and RSS accounts that can easily be added through an administration panel. A flexible API was built onto the project to make it easy to use the pulled social media activity into other places on the website.
