The social lounge is a virtual space where attendees can be seated at any table, move across the table, and engage with those at the same table in an informal discussion seamlessly. The new table can accommodate up to 16 participants (15 participants + 1 organizer)
Attendees can choose from three different layout options for better experience & engagement. For example, attendees can network at the social lounge table in the conference format, which happens to post every session.
Social lounge networking allows like-minded individuals to interact with their peers, build connections, learn from each other, grow their professional network, and generate potential personal & professional leads.
For Free plans, you can have up to 8 participants per table for an event.
For Social Webinars & Conference plans, you can have up to 15 participants per table for an event.
For Social Webinar Pro & Conference Premium plans, you can have up to 32 participants per table for an event.
The event organizer has an additional chair reserved for them on a table.
2. Table Meeting Layouts
A table layout includes options/information such as table name, maximize screen option, screen share, chat, the total number of participants in that table, and three different available layouts. They are gallery view, sidebar view, and an active speaker view.
For up to 8 participants, all three layouts will be available. Beyond eight participants, the gallery view is disabled.
- Gallery View
- Active Speaker view
- Spotlight view
Gallery view is enabled for a table of up to 8 participants. In this layout, the video of every participant is visible. Gallery view is automatically disabled when the participants’ limit reaches beyond 8.
Active Speaker view
In the active speaker view, a total of 5 videos are shown at a time. The active speaker video is visible along with four other videos.
For example, if a particular table has six participants, we show five active speaker videos that include one recent active speaker appearing on a larger screen.
For the rest of the participants, thumbnails are visible to optimize performance. In addition, when a screen share is enabled, then four videos are displayed in the sidebar.
The active speaker gets the larger view, and the local feed is shown in the right panel in this particular view.
3. Minimize & Maximize Table
Minimize & Maximize the table according to your preference and more visibility. Hover towards the
Right-side corner of the table and select the option.
Publish an invite for a table on the event feed and invite others to join you for a quick discussion.
