Welcome to the April GetSocial product update. In April, we’ve focused on enhancing Notifications, adding new Smart Invite Channels and getting ready for GDPR.
New Smart Targeting actions
We’ve added a set of predefined actions to Smart Targeting Notifications. From now on, you can send a notification that will open Smart Invites view, Activity Feed view, URL or any custom action. Check our documentation for details.
Click on the notification will open GetSocial Smart Invites view directly
Social Notifications preview
Our Social Notifications are localized into 24 languages. Now you can preview what text users will receive for each notification type in all supported languages.
To preview go to GetSocial Dashboard → App Settings section → Push Notifications tab and expand a notification type.
New Smart Invite channels
We’re constantly expanding the list of supported invite channels to make our user experience as smooth as possible. This month we’ve added support for Instagram Direct, Hangouts and VK.
To enable new channels for your users, go to GetSocial Dashboard → User Acquisition section → Smart Invites tab and flip the appropriate toggle in the Invite channels section.
Starting from SDK version 6.17.0 you can allow showing GetSocial Notifications on top of your application when it is in the foreground. Check the documentation for Android, iOS or Unity for configuration details.
Install fraud detection improvements
We’ve also made significant updates to our backend and SDK to make fraud detection and prevention more precise and feasible. To identify suspicious installs we’ve started taking into account click to install time, cookies and various other device information.
You may notice a small decrease in the number of installs on the Smart Invites and Smart Links analytics on the GetSocial Dashboard if we identify them some of these as fraudulent activity. In the next release, we’ll make information about suspicious and rejected installs available on the GetSocial dashboard and the webhooks.
On May 25, 2018, a new data privacy law called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into force, impacting how businesses collect and process data from individuals who live in the EU.
