Create Social Media by Seenspire card (Community Card)

This article provides the instructions to creating the Social Media by Seenspire card, which allows you to display information in real-time from external social media sites.

Also categorized as a Community Card, the Social Media by Seenspire card is created by Appspace but will be customized according to your needs by a third-party community developer using Appspace card APIs. Community cards will be turned off by default. Contact us to learn more about our developer community.
