Available for server-side and mobile sources, Astronomer Clickstream makes it easy to send your data to Facebook App Events. Once you follow the steps below, your data will be routed through our platform and pushed to Facebook App Events in the appropriate format.
What is Facebook App Events and how does it work?
Adding app events to your application or website helps you learn more about your audience and the actions people take across channels within Facebook Analytics. Plus, you can use app events to:
- Measure your mobile app ad performance
- Build Custom Audiences
- Optimize mobile app engagement ads
It’s also worth noting that Facebook has a standard set of events that need to be installed for various industry verticals. Otherwise, Facebook supports custom events so that your team can add location, and event details for promotion purposes.
