What is a soft gate?
A soft gate is a customizable box displayed on top of the first screen of your campaign. It invites participants to like a specific Facebook page or Twitter account before entering a campaign.
It can be activated in the tab "1. <Publication Channel” simply check ''activate a soft gate.
The soft gate can be used in any contest on any publication channel and works on mobile devices. However - in order inter alia to respect Facebook rules - you can’t force participants to like your Facebook page or Twitter account.
