Facebook enables marketers to set up app event tracking without having to add code

App developers and marketers now have access to a Codeless App Events Setup feature within the Facebook SDK Marketing Kit that lets them set up app event tracking on things like app registrations and purchases without having to create code.

“It simplifies the setup process by enabling marketers to add, modify and remove events with a simple point and click tool. Marketers no longer need to ask their developers to write code, release a new version of their app and wait for people to update, a process which could take weeks if not months,” says Facebook on the Facebook Business blog.

For access to the new feature, marketers will have to build their apps using the Facebook SDK platform. (The Codeless Event Setup tool can be accessed within the SDK’s Marketing Kit.) Facebook shared the following screen shots on its developer blog to show how the new point-and-click tool works:

The new feature was launched during Facebook’s F8 Developer Conference in May, when the company announced the latest version of its SDK.

Marketing managers from two different apps — EaseMyTrip and TrueID — both commented on how much time they saved with the new feature.

“We’ve gone from waiting for weeks to minutes, to get marketing changes deployed in our app,” says EaseMyTrip’s digital marketing manager, Akshay Sharda. True ID’s marketing manager called the Codeless Event Setup a game-changer.

How to Get SMS Alerts for Gmail via Twitter

How do you get SMS notifications on your mobile phone for important emails in your Gmail? Google doesn’t support text notifications for their email service but Twitter does. If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages. Similarly, users in India can text FOLLOW labnol to 9248948837 to get the tweets via SMS.The short code service of Twitter can act as a Gmail SMS notifier. You create a new Twitter account, set the privacy to private and this account will send a tweet when you get a new email in Gmail. Follow this account …

Instagram Story links get 15-25% swipe-through rates for brands, publishers

Instagram may arrived late as a traffic source for brands and publishers, but it’s already showing early signs of success, driving new visitors to their sites and even outperforming its parent company, Facebook.For years brands, publishers and other have tried to push people from the Facebook-owned photo-and-video-sharing app to their sites. Outside of ads and excepting a recent test with some retailers, Instagram didn’t offer much help to companies looking to use it to drive traffic. So they had to find workarounds. They put links in their Instagram bios. They scrawled short-code URLs onto their pictures. And they typed out links in their captions.Then last month Instagram finally introduced an official alternative to these hacky workarounds: the ability for verified profiles to insert links in their Instagram Stories.Almost a month after the launch, 15% to 25% of the people who see a link in an Instagram Story are swiping on it, according to a handful of brands and publishers that h…
