At Streamloots we’re always trying to find new ways for creators to provide valuable content to their communities, no matter the platform where they stream. And as a streamer grows and matures their content and channel, usually they come to realize that providing ‘offline’ content – meaning content that is always readily accessible and not just during a live stream – can be incredibly valuable to viewers as well.
It’s for this purpose that we’ve developed and just released the Streamloots Feed. With it, all creators will be able to provide constant and diverse offline content to supporters, keep your community updated on current or upcoming channels events, offer exclusive content for Subscribers only, and much more. In today’s article we’ll guide you through everything you need to know about the Streamloots Feed.

How can I and my community use/access my Streamloots Feed?
As the creator, you can access the Streamloots Feed by going to your public page, and then accessing the new Feed tab displayed below your profile picture. This is also how viewers can access your Feed, so make sure to share with them your Public Streamloots Page through social media, your chatbot, and other methods to keep them updated.
You can make your posts public or exclusive to Subscribers. If you want to choose the second option, make sure to click the option below the text field and select “Only Subscribers can see the post” before posting.
