What is Friend Gate?

Friend Gate is a  feature from Easypromos that permits administrators to make it a requirement for users to have a minimum number of friends who are also friends of the same Facebook Page before the user can take part in a promotion. In this way the user can only enter the promotion when he/she obtains the required number of friends who are also fans of the Page.

The user will know at every moment exactly how many of his or her friends are fans of the Page, and, if lacking the required minimum, can invite friends from the application itself.

Friend Gate is available for all promotions created with the Premium and White Label versions of Easypromos.
