Social images in Tableau

I'd like to pull the images associated with my Facebook, Twitter and Instagram posts and load them in Tableau. I'd assume a link to an image file would work if that is a field we can add to our datasets. Has anyone found a solution to pull images (in a .jpeg format or otherwise) with social data and incorporate them into a social dashboard?

  • In Facebook and Instagram I was able to get a 'link' field in my organic data sets. In Twitter the 'text' field contains the link to the post and I was able to extract it with the below formula. 

    "http" + REGEXP_EXTRACT([text],'http(.+)')

    From there you can use URL Actions to link out to the post or have it display directly in your dashboard.
