Pin or Unpin Posts

Not all content is created equal. You may want to draw your audience’s attention to particular posts - like a poll or welcome message. Sticking or "pinning" posts to the top of your stream is a great way to direct your audience’s attention to specific information as these posts will not become lost in the flow of your liveblog.
