Facebook Reactions Now Available in Simply Measured Reports Kevin Shively Blogger Extraordinaire Simply Measured

Facebook Reactions became a hot button issue on social media when they were released into the wild a few weeks back. Some people loved them, some hated them, some thought they would change the face of marketing forever. While Reactions may not change the game, they give people using Facebook the opportunity to easily convey a more diverse range of emotions, and that’s a good thing.

As a social marketer, you need the clearest and most accurate picture of what’s going on across your social channels, and we’re excited to announce that today, we’re bringing that to Simply Measured reports.

Facebook didn’t immediately change Likes to Reactions in their Insights API, but once they did, we got to work. As of today, “Reactions” will replace “Likes” in our Facebook Page Insights Report and Facebook Posts Insights report.
