Our mobile apps are now integrated with Facebook App Ads installs. This is a valuable tool to help brands connect with people who are more likely to install, and frequently use, your mobile app. These ads can be shown across Facebook, Instagram and Audience Network and will help brands track who's downloading their apps. This information can provide actionable insights about your customers such as their age, gender, location, and device preference.
NOTE: This integration cannot track in-app purchases. Facebook only tracks virtual in-app purchases, not physical purchases — and Olo products are considered physical purchases.
