Facebook Introduced a Way for Mobile App Developers to Be Verified

December 13, 2018 Posted by News 0 thoughts on “Facebook Introduced a Way for Mobile App Developers to Be Verified”

Facebook announced a verification process for individual developers that aren’t associated with specific businesses but still wish to build on the social network’s platform and continue using its application-programming interfaces.

Prior to this change, developers were required to connect to accounts in Business Manager and provide business details and documentation.

Individual developers that submit applications for review and have those apps pass the review process will receive requests for further verification, where they can select “verify as an individual.”

 

At that point, they must enter an email address where they can be contacted and upload an approved verification document—such as a passport, driver’s license or government-issued photo ID—which will be reviewed. Developers that are approved will be notified via email.

 

Developers that are granted individual verification will have full access to events, groups, Live video, the Facebook Marketing API and Messenger Platform, along with limited access to Facebook Login and pages, with page public content access unavailable to them and end-users only being able to access up to three pages using those developers’ apps.

Konstantinos Papamiltiadis, who works on products and partnerships for Facebook, wrote in a blog post, “We’ve heard from many developers who aren’t associated with a business and want to build on the Facebook platform … Individual verification is part of our continuing efforts to improve Facebook app review and support our Facebook developers as they build on the Facebook platform.”

Facebook opens Audience Network SDK beta program for developers, publishers

October 16, 2018 Posted by News 0 thoughts on “Facebook opens Audience Network SDK beta program for developers, publishers”

Facebook’s Audience Network platform allows brands and advertisers to push their Facebook ad campaigns beyond the social media platform. Having early access to an Audience Network SDK Beta program gives publishers and developers a head-start to using the new tool — it will offer them a chance to provide feedback on how the SDK can be improved before its launch.

“The input we receive from our developers and publishers is a valuable part in building and improving our solutions,” wrote Facebook on its Developer blog announcing the beta program. Facebook says input from users helps its team determine issues and create new features.

According to Facebook, Audience Network SDK beta users will have first-look access to the platform’s latest ad formats and tools, and will be able to use them immediately from the app. Among some of the features in the latest beta version, 5.0, are a reporting flow for Native Ads, multi-process support for Interstitial and Rewarded Video formats, a new Interstitial design for Mobile App Install ads.

Facebook has launched the beta program approximately one month prior to the official roll out.

More on the Audience Network SDK beta program

  • For publishers and developers interested in applying to the beta program, Facebook shared a link to its Business Manager site.
  • Those accepted into the beta program can earn Facebook advertising credits and connect with other beta testers in a closed developer community.
  • Facebook expects the official roll out for the SDK to happen around mid-November.
