Have you checked your Facebook Page analytics recently? If not, you might notice something different.
Facebook has rolled out its revamped Facebook Page Insights (the name Facebook gives to its analytics tool.) The new enhanced analytics should provide more detailed information on the posts you publish to your business page on the social media site. The company says the metrics are simpler.
The new Facebook Page Insights was first introduced in beta version over the summer. Facebook announced it has taken the feedback received the last few months into account and has made some changes prior to the worldwide roll out.
Basic Features of New Facebook Page Insights
Here are some of the changes you’ll notice from the new Facebook Page Insights on your Facebook Page:
Your Facebook Page Insights page will now have six tabs (as pictured above) to help you navigate through all the data Facebook is collecting on your behalf about your Page visitors. The tabs are:
“People Talking About This” (PTAT) Metrics are broken down
The improved metrics break down the stats into:
- Page Likes
- People Engaged
- Page Tags
- Page Mentions
These stats combine to give you a Virality metric, which Facebook now calls the Engagement Rate. This will tell you how much interaction each post on your Page receives from those who Like your Page.
Each post on your Facebook Page will now be broken down into both positive and negative interactions. This will let you know what post prompted people to Like your Page or share your post or, conversely, block your Page posts from appearing on their News feeds.
The new Facebook Insights are designed to also tell you the activity you’re generating from organic interest, and what Likes and interactions are coming from any marketing/advertising you perform on Facebook.
If you don’t like the new analytics, or have a suggestion, Facebook says it is still accepting feedback.
