jSignage Social library is a jSignage plugin used for secure connection and data retrieval from different third-party data providers, such as Facebook, Google, Instagram, Microsoft Online, Twitter, Yahoo. Most of the data-driven widgets included into Elementi are based on this plugin.

jSignage.Social.js requires jSignage.js, thus it must be included in the document after that:
