5 Ways to Take Your Facebook Insights Reporting To The Next Level Adam Schoenfeld Blogger Extraordinaire Simply Measured

If you drive social media for a brand, we can safely assume that you’re spending time on Facebook. If you are charged with measuring your brand’s Facebook programs, you’re probably thinking about better optimizing activities and reporting on results as your investment grows. Supporting a leading Facebook strategy with a leading measurement framework typically means taking your analysis beyond the stock Facebook Insights dashboard.

We’ve long delivered a full suite of Facebook analytics to help solve this problem, but we’re not resting yet. Today we’re taking it to the next level with a new real-time Post Insights report, Domain Insights report, and major enhancements to our Fan Page Insights report. This goes along with Facebook competitive analysis and cross-channel social media reporting to give you the industry’s most complete analytics in one place. Here’s a look at the Facebook reporting now available with Simply Measured:

Complete Facebook Fan Page Insights

Understanding what is happening on your Fan page in general is key to measuring success and proactively making improvements. Our updated Page Insights report makes the data easy to consume and answers questions like, how are fans finding and engaging with my page? How does organic, paid, and viral reach compare? How does demographic data relate to engagement and reach metrics?

Domain Insights: Facebook’s Impact on Your Website

Integrating Facebook “social plugins” gives fans an easy way to interact with your website content. It also provides you with another layer of Facebook data, known as Domain Insights. Evaluating this data shows the connection between Facebook actions happening on your site and their downstream impact. With our new you report, you can more easily connect these dots and understand how the Facebook tools affect engagement on your site.
