Configuring Google and Facebook pixels on your Drum website will send data for clicks, views, purchases, and other key information to your Google and Facebook tracking and advertising platforms.
Enabling these pixels will allow you to track this information outside the Drum platform and also promote your links, videos, and products through the SEO and SEM capabilities that Google and Facebook provide.
This article goes through the details of how to set up and configure the Google and Facebook pixels on your Drum page using the Drum Mobile app.
