Push Notifications are alerts sent to your mobile phone regardless of whether you are using it or not, as long as you are connected to the internet. These alerts can be of messages, streams, advertisements, event notifications, the latest score sports, things you may not want to miss out on. This service is a quick way in which app publishers speak directly to a user without the alerts getting spammed and piled up in the inbox.
Each mobile service platform from iOS, Android, Blackberry, Windows, all have support for push notification and have their own. Push notifications can enhance actions such as: Promoting products and offers from different stores, improving customer experience, immediately sending transactions receipts, driving users to social marketing networks, suggests people you may know, reminds you of peoples’ birthdays, tags, fundraisers, crisis, comments.
The first push notification was started by Apple in June 2009, Apple Push Notification Service, APNs. Later in May, the following year, Google released Google Cloud to Device Messaging, C2DM. Two years later, ‘rich notifications’ containing pictures and action keys that let users act immediately on alerts were introduced. In September 2014, Apple added communicative keys that permitted clients to send their replies to the app publisher. This option was later made available on the Apple Watch.
Only Fans is a web-based social media platform where fans get to pay to interact with someone who acts as a host to their page one on one. It is only after paying a subscription fee monthly or annually when fans can interact with the person of choice. The idea behind the creation of Only Fans was to have a social space just like Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter but one where creators would earn directly from the platform. The person displaying content could either be a celebrity or not, sharing whatever they deem fit for the fans to see, hence the name Only Fans. It was founded in the UK back in 2016 and is owned by Fenix International Limited. If used properly, it could provide a great step in terms of finances.
The platform distributes funds to the creators every 7 days from the day of the payment. Some creators have come out openly to say how they would make thousands of dollars from the platform.
When someone creates an account, they automatically become a fan first but can choose to upgrade their accounts to creators if they so wish. Fans are required to verify their age, and also required to upload their credit/debit card details to enable them to subscribe to their favorite creators’ page. Creators must verify that they are of legal age, and upload their banking details so the money earned from subscriptions can be wired to their accounts.
Just like Facebook, Only Fans have a Push notification service. To activate it, the applicant has to head over to the advanced settings after logging in, and click on enable to switch on the push notification service. You can test push notifications by using Push Try to check if it is working or not. It is a web-based app, they will mostly be messages from your fans, alerts of new subscribers.
All Android operating systems offer location opt-in as part of the app’s permission setup during installation, iOS presents an opt-in alert to users. This helps publishers to use an individual’s location with push notifications, making them more personalized and centralized to the customer’s frequented area. It ideally makes everything available to the customer, enhancing convenience and flexibility. Most apps we install, ask to send push notifications during installation, what are the implications when we accept? What if we deny?
For some you can’t ignore, to progress forward you must choose an option. As much as we need to know what is running on our apps, they can be a hindrance to being as productive as we had planned. They steal attention from whatever was being done and end up wasting time scrolling at things that could have waited for the completion of the task at hand first. Push notifications can also be influenced by an algorithm that the publisher interprets based on the likes and comments on a post by the consumer. This will guide them in making a rough estimate of what the client may be interested in and have related notifications sent their way.
