  • Pasting a TW/FB link directly in a VCP Template

    I'm trying to figure a way, to use the Viz Social TV features, but I'm also trying to create a more simple way to show social media content. Sometimes we get an email with a social media link, which points directly to a TW/FB post. It might be related to a case we're showing, and the post wasn't caught by the Feed Streamer filters, because the user didn't use the correct hashtags etc. So is it possible to make a VCP template, which can harvest the same information, as the Feed Streamer, and if yes, how? It turned out that we missed several important inputs, during some of our Breaking News events, because we didn't have this option. There is always the old fashion way, copy/paste text and image to a VCP template, but that's not what I want to do here

    Cheers Christian

    there is no easy way to achieve this since it requires the VCP template to integrate directly to twitter and Facebook API to request for the Json of a particular message, in any case this is a feature already in the roadmap of socialTV
