How to moderate the UGC mentions

The moderation option is a needed feature for brands to make sure that some of the posts that users share on their social media feed, need to be checked first before showing them on a website.

We do not encourage censorship in any way, but sometimes this moderation option is to filter content that is possibly harming the overall community standards on social media and also your brand’s policies.

If you want to use EmbedFeed and moderate the mentions feeds, here is how you can do that:

  1. Open your feed and click the ‘Moderation’ Tab
  2. Click ‘Unselect All’
  3. Check the box in the top right corner of the posts you want to publish
  4. In the Settings panel, set the ‘Auto add new media’ option to NO

In the screenshot below, you can all the steps on how to moderate your Instagram or Facebook feed:

Why Social Monitoring

In the digital age, the social monitoring of your brand’s mentions is a definite must. People talk about you on social media, whether you like it or not, so your only strategy will be to listen and engage.

That said, the biggest use cases for using tools to monitor your mentions are as follows:

  • Discover and respond to problems ASAP
  • Generate UGC that can be reused for future campaigns
  • Create close interactions with people and build loyal fans.
  • Save time and use one app to get all the mentions in one place


The user-generated content will be one of the main focuses of marketers in 2023 due to its power to spread the word-of-mouth concept at scale.

The best way to monitor, generate, organize and re-use the UGC content created around your brand is to use third-party tools that are eligible to build on top of the major social media networks.

Related to this, EmbedFeed is your full UGC platform with the option to generate content posted as mentions or hashtags on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter with additional options to create feeds from your own Facebook or Instagram accounts.
