New Comprehensive and GDPR-compliant Policies

It's been a long time (almost 5 years!) since we last updated the policies governing our apps. Back then, we had hired a law firm to craft the terms for us.

A New Metric To Track Likes On Your Page

Example of a Page Likes increase stats

Today we are introducing a new metric on the Stats page that will help you track the increase of Likes on your Page. The app records the number of Likes when the contest is added to your Page tab and will stop monitoring after the contest closes or once it's taken off the Page. This will give you a good overview of how your fan based increased while the contest was running. This is especially helpful if you added a Like button to your contest and want to track the impact on your Page Likes.

Search And Filter Your Contests

The contest filters menu

Today we are happy to finally make it easier to search and filter contests.
