CliqueShow is a real-time slideshow application which dynamically populates images using a social media hashtag. Register an event with CliqueShow and specify your desired hashtag you wish to populate your slideshow from.

This Privacy Policy will explain how CliqueShow will use, collect, share and securely protect your personal information while using our services.

By using CliqueShow you understand and agree that we are providing an online slideshow service that is created from images posted on social media outlets which allows anyone to be able to contribute to your slideshow. We do offer specialty features to block unwanted photos and user accounts from being added to the slideshow. There are also 2 methods which photos can be added to a slideshow (1) Automatic Approval. As soon as a user posts a photo with the desired hashtag it is added to the slideshow. (2) Manual Approval. All photos posted with the desired hashtag must be manually approved before they go live, this is more of a proactive approach to filtering slideshow images.


All of the information that is stored on our servers is protected and encrypted using appropriate practices for transmitting data online. We do this not only to protect your information but also to protect against unauthorized access or alteration to your personal information, username, password, transaction information or other data stored on our servers.


CliqueShow will not rent, sell or share any of your private information to any third party company.


CliqueShow will only collect personal identification information from users when registering an account on the site. Users may be asked for their full name, email address, mailing address and to create a unique CliqueShow username and password. The information we collect is required to create a CliqueShow account and process payments.

To help protect our customs and for added security reasons, CliqueShow does not store any Credit Card information in its database. CliqueShow uses PayPal services to process all transaction due to the many security benefits and features that PayPal employs. CliqueShow will store the reference transaction number from PayPal to acknowledge that purchase has been made, in addition to the amount paid and transaction date and time.


CliqueShow will only store photos, captions, usernames and user photos of relevant Instagram photos that are used as a registered CliqueShow event name. For instance, if an event is registered with CliqueShow with the desired hashtag name of “ExampleWedding2016” all images that use this hashtag will be stored in order to display the photo and caption along with who posted the image.

All of the Instagram stored content is always keep up to date; if an Instagram user changes their profile photo of caption of a photo, those changes are updated on our site as well. Additionally, if an Instagram user removes a photo or the event hashtag from their Instagram account, the photo will be removed from the CliqueShow slideshow.


To improve our customers experience!

CliqueShow uses a unique algorithm that continuously loops over the entire collection of photos in its slideshow library. The slideshow library is dynamically populated from images that share a common hashtag name on Instagram. CliqueShow stores Instagram photo information to ensure the slideshow stays fluid; changing the order of the slideshow based on recently viewed photos and prioritizing newly posted photos as they become available.

Figure 1.1
Fluid Algorithm 3 Photos
Figure 1.2
Fluid Algorithm 4 Photos

In Figure 1.1, there are only 3 photos currently in the slideshow library. The slideshow will loop starting with Red, Blue and then Green until more photos get added to the slideshow library.

In Figure 1.2, the colour Blue is currently being displayed and a forth image has been added to the slideshow library which is represented as the color purple. The purple image has never been displayed in the slideshow so it takes the highest priority and becomes the next photo in the slideshow cue. After a new photo has been added to the slideshow library, the algorithm reorganizes the order of the photos in the cue.

Our custom algorithm embraces a fluid slideshows architecture and ensures that our viewers will never see the same image twice before seeing a newly posted image or the rest of the photos in the slideshow library cue.

In addition to our custom slideshow algorithm, CliqueShow extends further functionality to allows an event host to block photos and/or block users from contributing to the slideshow. The event host can also bump a photo to the top of the slideshow library. Furthermore, the event host can decide to automatically add photos to the slideshow as soon as they get posted to Instagram or manually approve each photo before letting it go live.


To make easy for Instagram users to contribute to a slideshow, we have tried to employ the easiest and most intuitive way for them to do so, regardless of their level of technical experience or knowledge of using Instagram or smartphone apps in general.

The most intuitive we found to allow Instagram users to contribute to a CliqueShow slideshow is to have them follow our Instagram account “CliqueShow”. This tells our system which users of Instagram would like to participate in a slideshow and will only look for photos with a specified hashtag for a registered event.

In the event that an Instagram user deletes their photo from their Instagram profile account or removes the event hashtag from their photo, the photo will be removed from the CliqueShow slideshow. Additionally, Instagram users can opt out of a CliqueShow slideshow at any time by simply unfollowing the “CliqueShow” Instagram profile account.
