Ad Audience is a term describing group of users who are ad targets on SNS ad-platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. Repro sends ADIDs (IDFA and/or AAID) to these ad-platforms and allows Repro users to register them as ad audiences. Not only registering ADID of all of your exising users, but you can also registered segmented users targeted based on their event behavior as well as user profile data.
Distribute ads to users with high chance of becoming paying users by using facebook's lookalike audience with using ADIDs of users who've subscribed on the app.
Use ADIDs of users who haven't launched the app for a week and distribute ads on twitter to encourage them to come back.

If you see something like Last update was successful, the registration had completed successfully .

Audiences are not updated automatically. If you wish to deliver ads to users who became eligible matching the given condition after the audience was created, you need to regularly update the audience. To maintain effective ad audiences, please make sure to update them in an appropriate period.
Check Audiences on Ad-Platforms¶
Once you finish registering audiences on Repro, necessary processing will start on the ad-platforms. IDFAs sent from Repro and the users' data collected on ad-platforms will be matched at this timing and become usable for ad campaigns as an audience.
There might be some cases where you need to wait until the data processing on the ad-platforms' side until you can actually use the registered ad audiences for campaigns. The time needed varies depending on the volume of the registered ADID or the processing speed on the ad-platform. Notification services of these platforms maybe convenient for such situation.
The users who that be registered as part of an ad audience are the ones who already have an account on the designated platform. Please note that the number of users between Repro's website and the ones you can see on the platform's side may vary since the aggregated group of users on Repro may contain ones without an account of the platform, and not be part of the registered audience.
