In version 1.0 launched last November, we packaged social actions into an easy-to-use Social ActionBar. Now in version 2.0, we’ve vastly extended Socialize’s functionality and made it infinitely customizable.
Here’s a video with Jason Polites, our VP of Engineering, demoing the new Android SDK
The new SDK offers numerous bug fixes and performance improvements, along with a greatly simplified API experience allowing you to leverage the full suite of Socialize capabilities with an extremely easy-to-use set of utility classes.
We’re always working to minimize our SDK footprint and ensure zero latency. Our SDK works via an asynchronous call method, so it will never slow your users down. We run over 3,000 unit tests on each release and auto-scale our infrastructure. Learn more in our complete feature list.
Introducing the Social ActionBar, Re-Imagined:
Get ready to make your app beautiful with killer social features integrated like never before. We’ve completely re-imagined the way Socialize can be implemented in your app.
You can still use the traditional Socialize ActionBar, but now you have infinitely more options. You can easily implement individual components like sharing around the entities in your app, or around the entire app itself. You can easily change the UI of the social actions, and wrap them around multiple entities in a single view.
Made for White Labeling and Customization:
We are here to make you look good. With our new SDK, Socialize can be white labeled like never before. Not only do we allow you complete and easy control over how the social actions are presented to the user in the app, but we’ve also made it possible for you to customize how the social actions appear on each user’s Facebook news feed.
But we didn’t stop there. We also made the way a social action posts to Facebook even more engaging and enticing to Facebook users. It’s all part of boosting installs through our SmartDownload system. Want to be even more bleeding edge? Sign up for our Open Graph beta.
Take Over Control:
Strap yourself into the driver’s seat. We have made a number of enhancements that make it easy for you to efficiently and effectively integrate Socialize right into your app.
We’ve also included a demo app that showcases Socialize’s default functionality with testing mechanisms that give you a deeper level of control over the way social actions post inside and outside the app and customizable user authentication levels. This allows you to fine tune your users’ social experience.
Make Them Aware, Then Help Them Share:
Sharing starts inside the app with an awareness of other users and the actions they are taking. Our SDK lets you start to leverage the community of users that’s been hiding in your app.
We now give you access to the activity stream of social actions being taken inside your app, so you can make your users aware of what others are doing. And we’ve also bulked up the external sharing functionality and views to encourage users to tell others about your awesome app.
Call Any Facebook API with the Socialize SDK:
We’ve made it easier than ever to leverage the power of Facebook from within your app.
Our new SDK gives you the ability to effortlessly call any Facebook API, allowing you to do things like listing all the friends of the user and all the check-ins of the user from right inside the app.
