Social media


The Publications Office uses social media integrations to provide ease of access to its users and help them spread and popularise content and to increase user engagement by sharing information from its social media outlets.

Main use cases:

  • authentication (login),
  • social media sharing,
  • embedding videos (YouTube) and news streams (Twitter) on pages.


Used to improve the user experience by allowing the user to log in with a social media account and access specific user areas on the Publications Office Portal.
