Do you have a very quiet and simple sales point? Would you like your customers spend more time in your shop? Are you looking to improve your points of sales and your relation with your customers? Are you also looking to add some extra spice to your shop? Sociatag photobooth is the answer.

The photobooth makes spaces more fun and engaging, increases interaction between attendees as they gather to take photos and socialize, and improves your interaction and communication with your clientele. Whether you are a clothing shop, a restaurant, a supermarket, a gaming space or even an optician, Sociatag photobooth is the answer. It will add up a lot of fun, excitement and will enhance your communication with your customers both inside and outside your store.

Every customer will take photos with your shop appearing in the background and your brand logo upfront, which will make each and every one of them your brand ambassador both online and offline. Your customers will be willingly advertising your business and you will be guaranteeing greater awareness and exposure with no effort at all.

Coworking +961 is an open coworking space for freelancers and entrepreneurs, providing them with the ideal interactive platform to work efficiently and productively on their projects.

On July 2, new space Co-Working 961 was launched in Beirut alongside the LBA Pitching Event, which brought together the Lebanese Angel investors community alongside guest Angels from Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and Dubai to attend between 7-9 startup pitches. The event was organized by the Bader Young Entrepreneurs Program and MIT Enterprise Forum – Pan Arab Region.

Guests swiped their cards over Sociatag boxes and enjoyed taking pictures with other attendees, while checking in and liking the latest Coworking 961 page posts.

Want to know more about Sociatag products?

We will bring you the complete list of our products as a final stage of the whole Sociatag process discussed in earlier posts.

Sociatag links daily real-life experiences with the digital world. Sociatag will spice up your events, shops, and restaurants. It will make your place more entertaining, fun, attractive and appealing to customers. To be able to do so Sociatag uses a number of tools:

The Sociatag box is a device that allows users to directly connect with the online community by a simple tap. It can be utilized as a:

  • Facebook, Foursquare or Twitter check-in box
  • Like a Facebook page status, a Foursquare venue or a LinkedIn company box
  • Follow or Tweet box
  • Rating box
  • Photobooth unit (takes live pictures of you and uploads them automatically to your Facebook profile or Fan page).

and many other more..

The Sociatag Readers are devices that allow users to directly connect to the online community by a simple tap. Customers are given the opportunity to personalize and share their experiences with friends and family by registering their own tag, and by signing up to their sociatag account using Facebook, Twitter or their own email address. Users later have the opportunity to participate in different activities.

The Sociatag tags are QR codes that users scan using Sociatag mobile application to connect to the online community. They can be used as an identification card in big events and conferences. Based on your choice our tags come as either fully branded, semi-branded, or not branded. We have 3 different types of tags: Wristbands, Key chains and PVC cards.

The Sociatag cookies are NFC based tags that users link to their Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare, LinkedIn or any other social media profile. (For more info check our NFC post). All what a user have to do is to choose his cookie, then directly link it to his profile. His friends then just have to tap their phones to the cookie and they’ve found his profile at ease.

Want to be part of the next big thing? Are you interested in having our products at your next event or at your store? Then please visit

You’ve met us at several events, you’ve heard about us from here or there, you’ve read an article mentioning us, or most probably you’ve visited our website. In all cases, here’s a small introduction about who we are, what we do and how we do it.

In simple words, Sociatag brings the offline world online. Our main aim is to add value to offline events by connecting them with their online community, and allowing them to engage the users and attendees outside of the physical venue, thereby creating a viral buzz. So at events, conferences, concerts, malls, restaurants, hotels, etc. people will be able to like the targeted Facebook page, check-in, tweet, or even take a photo. All the above mentioned tasks happen with a simple click. Users can use the Sociatag app on their mobile phones; or by swiping their PVC cards, key chains, wrist bands or stickers. Every activity then is brought online, as the following screenshots shows.



The Website:

Users will have to register and connect their social networks. All events will have a page on the Sociatag website, where all activities concerning the event will show up. Moreover, the website also has the “store” page where businesses would choose their preferred products.

The app:

Via the app, especially if the handset has NFC built in, users can perform the desired tasks at any Sociatag box.

Meet us at our next blog post for more details about our products.



Super heroes’ fans gathered at the launch of Geek Express’s Marvel Exhibition. With more than 400 official, original and rare items (collectibles, posters, comics) of your favorite characters: Hulk, Spiderman, Ironman… The first 50 visitors won tickets to the Iron-Man 3 movie.

Sociatag was present with three boxes: Like, Check-in and Photo booth. The photo booth was customized. After swiping the card at the box, users choose which super hero they want to take a photo with. The fifteen super heroes list showed on the screen, and via a joystick users made their choice and pressed a button to confirm their choice. And the pictures are awesome!

The exhibition is running for two weeks, and Sociatag’s boxes will be there. You can check more information on Geek Express page.
