Lightbulb Android: Unlock application's additional features with Facebook share or tweet

I have a free application published on Google Play. I want to add some new features and ask users to 'pay' for them with Facebook shares or tweets.

Scenario:

1. User updates application
2. New features are available in settings but they are not active
3. To activate feature user has to share information about my application on FB or on Tweeter
4. Only if sharing was successful feature will be available to the user.

For me it seems like a good idea to spread information about application in social media... however I can't find any 'out of the box' solution (library or code). Is there any?

Has anybody tried this approach and was it successful?

Also I'm trying to find out if this method is compliant with Google Play policy. I've read play.google.com/about/developer-content-policy.html with great care but I didn't find any clues. Has anyone got any policy violations emails from Google after implementing this method?

Maybe you can find something in the Facebook API.

What do you use to code? There's tons of assets for Unity that'd do what you're trying to do.

I'm not using Unity but develop my app in 'pure' Android SDK.

Just found this library: http://www.codeproject.com/Tips/4571...nkedin-in-Andr
It looks promising so I'll give it a try.

You mean reward users for posting on Facebook or any social share, sure I dont think its that hard,
just everytime a user presses on the Share button add some coins to him ingame, you can also make
alot of money if you reward useres for watching a video ad in your game like a Vungle ad.
