Facebook Insights: New Simply Measured Report Makes It Easier Than Ever Kevin Shively Blogger Extraordinaire Simply Measured

You may have noticed that Facebook Insights looks a little different lately. The social network cut their confusing PTAT Metric, reorganized their dashboard, and changed a few other key metrics.

But with several tabs for various metrics, navigating through Facebook’s Insights to find actionable…well…insight?  It can be a somewhat tedious and time-consuming task.

Luckily, simplifying your big data sets to make them more consumable is what Simply Measured does best, and this is no exception.

As soon as the changes were made, we began working with Facebook’s API to update our Facebook Page Insights Report, giving you a simple way to understand and report on your Facebook Insights, all from one dashboard.

These legacy reports are available alongside the new Facebook Page Insight Report within the Simply Measured App Reports tab.

“As long as Facebook continues to offer these legacy metrics, we’ll make sure our customers can use them” says Upadhya.

If you’re a Simply Measured customer, feel free to take a look at the new report in the app today. The new report is available for all reporting back to 12/01/2012.
