Cool Feature For Matrix To Add Interactivity.

Hi I had a thought on a cool feature but lack the coding skills. I think this would add a cool aspect to those using Facebook and Instagram to interact with their visitors. It shouldn't be too difficult for some of you coders out there. Here is what inspired me. It could be set up to add messages to the queue like the twilio control. Actually would be great if you could use both plugins together. Could work with Facebook, Instagram and any other service that offers an API.



I know Ben and I were looking at doing a Facebook plugin.  As soon as someone likes your page, their name would appear on a matrix.  Facebook doesn't allow apps to get that information.  Which doesn't make any sense because as an admin to my show's Facebook page I can see everyone who's liked my show anyway...


We added the ability to send your name via text message and have it be displayed in the large grid (after proper filtering of course).  It was a huge hit last year.



I'm actually using that feature for halloween in 2 ways. If I could code a bit I would be able to make it easier but for now I am also using Twilio studio.  When someone sends in their name my tombstone matrix reads "REST IN PEACE" and their name. They then receive a phone call from Mickey mouse and immediately receive a text with my instagram and facebook pages.
