Role played by Facebook in the working of TrulyMadly

Facebook plays a major role in cultivating a trusted user verification system on TrulyMadly. Not only does Facebook Login provide an easy way to sign up and log in, it also enables people to use their existing information on Facebook to fill out their TrulyMadly profiles in a jiffy. With such expediency, more than 80% of TrulyMadly’s customers now access the app with Facebook Login. TrulyMadly uses Graph API to fetch his/her information such as pictures, first name, age, location, gender, and relationship status upon a user’s consent. This information is used in TrulyMadly’s match-making algorithm to help users find their perfect match, along with increasing a user’s trust score. The best part about this is that it allows people to control what information they allow the app to use and what the app posts to Facebook. This ensures a high level of privacy for its customers.

Facebook Analytics for TrulyMadly

TrulyMadly now uses the Facebook Analytics for apps instead of their in-house analytics tool which they previously used. This was done in order to allow for more extensive customer behavior analysis. They use Facebook Analytics for Apps to find the number of daily, weekly and monthly active users. To add to this, they use associates to discover what their daily and monthly user retention rates are like. Selection of certain user segments is possible due to the Facebook Analytics for Apps that allow them to create a seed audience list.

Based on this seed audience and target ads to people who will become high-quality users of the platform, Custom Audience enables them to create a Lookalike Audience. To obtain these new customers, TrulyMadly uses Facebook App Ads, targeting ads to people of specific demographics and interests. The CPI on Facebook was 50% less than what they have spent on any other social media services. With more than 20% of their customers acquired from Facebook, App Ads have become their favored source for paid acquisition.

Nevertheless, there is still a vast segment of the population that has not resorted to internet dating apps. Regardless of a few apps being extremely safe in nature, we cannot guarantee if people would give into their charm, TrulyMadly.
