Below we will go over what the Connections tab on a Flyout Profile includes. 


The Connections tab allows you to preview all of the Creator/Influencer's social Connections with a snippet of the 6 most recent pieces of content posted from each. This information comes from the Creator/Influencer's self-reported Connections in the platform. Under each preview you will find the social media icon corresponding to the Creator/Influencer's social Connection, the username for that Connection, and the total number of followers associated with each Connection. 

If you hover over a particular Connection, you will have the option to either click View Connection or View on (social media platform name). Clicking View Connection will trigger another screen to open which will give you deeper insight into that specific social Connection. 

  • After you have clicked View Connection, this new screen will have a new header that includes the following:
    • The profile photo the Creator/Influencer uses for that Connection.
    • The username the Creator/Influencer has set for that Connection.
    • The communities the Creator/Influencer has self reported or been discovered in.
    • The total number of followers for that Connection. This information is pulled from the API of each social Connection used and is updated daily.

On each each preview display, you can view the number of engagements as well as the post date of the content. This information is scraped or pulled from the Creator/Influencer's active Connections.

  • If you click on a particular post under Recent Content, a new window will open up showing you the details of that post. From here you can link out to the Creator/Influencer's profile for that social Connection or link out to the actual post itself.
