Analytics Dashboard


The Analytics dashboard offers insight into your posts' performance. To access Analytics, click on the calendar and go to the Analytics icon:

The Analytics dashboard is separated into tabs by Social Media Platform. Data provided in the Account Overview table shows general metrics based on the date range that you selected. They take everything happening on your page into account. Note that we provide more Account Overview Metrics with Advanced Analytics.

The Post Metrics table gives you the metrics based on the lifetime of the posts that were published in the date range. This means each post and its metrics that appear in the table are for the lifetime of the post and not only from the date range selected.

1. Understanding Facebook Analytics

  • Total Reach: The number of people who have seen content associated with your page.

2. Understanding Instagram Analytics

Account-Level Statistics

  • New Followers: The number of new people who have followed your account. Note: this metric only takes into account people who started following you and does not take into account people who stopped following you.

  • Reach: The total number of unique people who have seen your content.
    Please note that the value being reported for reach at the account level is daily reach values that are added together. Due to the fact that Instagram is reporting them with uniqueness collapsing over longer time frames, it may not be consistent for time frames larger than one day when comparing to Instagram's reach values greater than 1 day.
