BBM Channels let you convert your BBM App into a complete outreach platform. All you need is your Blackberry ID and the latest version of BBM to begin your own broadcast channel where you get to post your content and have your subscribers react and debate. You can set up each of the relevant controls with such a platform in terms of the scope of the interaction.
Add and manage your BBM channels
You get to know when your content has reached your subscriber with ‘Delivered’ and ‘Read’ alerts as also the ‘Like’ and ‘Comment’ features. With the results of your outreach available in detail, your engagement with your community is quick and precise. You can use up to 400 characters to fashion your message that makes its way instantly to your followers. You need to pick a title for your message and a picture of not more than 200 kb to go along. Managing your channel can be done both on your phone as well as on the net. A social media console enables you to manage all your social media activity from one location. Use the Analytics feature to get all the data you want about how your channel is performing. You can moderate and delete comments made by your subscribers.
Create your own BBM channel
You can either create your channel on the app or on the site. With a name for your channel and a profile picture, you are ready to broadcast your message, product or service. You are always present to your followers as the BBM channel acts as your real-time streaming platform. When you make an update, you are Live. The medium allows direct chatting with your subscribers. To set up your channel, you need to add a channel picture and choose the category in which your channel will come under. You can also activate your channel to be found on ‘Search.’ Other customizations include whether you want to chat with your subscribers and whether you want to accept comments. If you are running a business, you can add your contact details.
