We are trying to do more/better FB Ad targetting, and as part of that, we need to implement Facebook Pixel to track the "value" of our user. Here is some info on Facebook Pixel.

Has anyone done this integration using Corona? We have been searching around and came across some information that this is something that the FB SDK integrates with. But does the Corona Facebook Plugin does that? 

 

We found this Facebook documentation, which seems to indicate that the stock Facebook SDK should support Pixels now. But it's not clear that the default FB plugin supports these API?

 

https://developers.facebook.com/docs/app-events/hybrid-app-events/

 

 

Any help or pointer would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks!

Andrew

The current Facebook plugin doesn't currently support this. We have an engineer looking into this.

Thanks Rob! Just so you know why this is important. This is something that Facebook requires in order to do what's called Value Optimized Campaigns, one of the common campaign types. https://www.facebook.com/business/help/296463804090290

Its a hack but you could load a tiny webView and drop the pixel?

@SGS That's a very interesting idea. We'll take a look. You don't think this would impact app performance or have other side effects?

@RobMiracle Any news on the plugin?

 

@SGS We've gone ahead and implemented the webview and will deploy it shortly to see if it is working. But reading through the FB documentations available, it's not clear that this none-SDK approach could attribute installs properly back to the ad that was served...
