Ring in the Holidays with Your SocialEngine Community

SocialEngine PHP Community Script

Holidays can be such a warm and fun time of year! You can liven up your SocialEngine PHP community and help your members celebrate the holidays. We’ll give some tips to help you get your social network socializing this holiday season. All of the tips below are easy to do with SocialEngine!

Change Phrases for the Holiday

A quick and simple change you can do to surprise your members is to change some phrases on your website. For example, you could change “member/members/user/users” to “elf/elves” and have a fun family experience. 

Perhaps change “What’s New” to “Happy Holiday Happenings!” or something similar. 

Change Colors

It’s pretty easy to change colors. You could make a simple holiday color scheme and change the header/footer colors. 

Along with that, add some festive banners for the holidays. There are plenty of sources for free images to use such as my fave, Pixabay.

Many third party experts have holiday themes. Perhaps check with your favorite third party expert and purchase a holiday theme.

Add Fun Content

With all of the features of SocialEngine PHP, you have a multitude of areas to add fun and interesting content to your community. Perhaps post some blogs about holiday celebrations, post events for your members to attend, add some trivia to your polls, create forum topics for holiday recipes – the list is endless. 

With people moving from Facebook and Twitter, your community can be a great alternative this holiday season for new members to flock. If you haven’t started your community yet, now’s the time to get in on the big holiday sale on either SocialEngine PHP self-hosted or managed.

What is interesting is the power and the impact of social media… So we must try to use social media in a good way.
