We are very glad and proud to introduce the new Action Gate!
Facebook changed their rules which means that “like gates” or “fan gates” can no longer be used. We have moved with the times and complied by removing the “Like Gate” from our platform (you can read more about this here). After much brainstorming we have created a new and improved way for your app-visitors to share your contest, Facebook page or the website of your choice.
Introducing the Action Gate!
The Action Gate lets you choose from 4 social platforms (more will be added soon) and add their social plugins to your application. Facebook, Google+, Twitter and LinkedIn are currently supported.
Your app could look like this if you have the new Action Gate activated (see figure 1):
How does this new action gate work in my app?
With the Action Gate you can add social plugins from 4 different social network (Facebook, Google+, Twitter and LinkedIn) and more will be added soon. Your users can then choose to share your Facebook Page or website of your choice by interacting with these buttons.
Your users have the option to click or interact with the social buttons, alternatively they can choose to click the blue link (see figure 1) saying “click here to continue to the app” or click on the arrow in the top right corner of your app. They will then go directly to the app’s start page.
You can sort the buttons the way you want and you do not have to use all of the social buttons if you choose not to. You can easily select which buttons to show and you can also of course customize the header of each button and the link text to connect to your app.
We are very excited to announce the launch of the new Action Gate and we really hope you like it to! Let us know if you experience any problems and we will of course be happy to help!
