Facebook Page Insights 2015

Facebook Page Insights

Are you curious to what the Insights tab does, or why it’s even there? This tool will help you build a better relationship with your fans, by being able to target a specific demographic, or post when they are online.

Far too many times we get asked how can we be more impactful with our posts… and the answer is look at your insights. Know your audience and know when they’re online. Below is a great place to start when learning about insights.

Thanks to Facebook for having this information readily available.


The Overview tab provides a snapshot of the last seven days of
your Page’s performance. It focuses on 3 core items:
  • Page Likes: Total and new likes for your Page
  • Post Reach: Total number of unique people who were shown your Page and posts
  • Engagement: Total number of unique people who engaged with your Page, as well as different engagement types
You can also see your 5 most recent posts and use more tools:
  • Pages to Watch: See how businesses similar to yours perform. For example, if you’re a jewelry retailer you can get posting ideas based on engaging posts from other retailers.
  • Pages Manager App: Respond to people on the go. Download the free app from the iTunes Store or Google Play Store.

See your total likes, reach and more.



In the Likes tab, you’ll see 3 core metrics:
  • Page Likes: The total Page likes for each day, over a 28-day period
  • Net Likes: The number of new likes minus the number of unlikes
  • Where Your Page Likes Happened: The number of times your Page was liked, broken down by where it happened

who matter to you by targeting your posts.

The People tab is divided into Your Fans, People Reached and People Engaged.
  • Your Fans: View the gender, age, location and language of the people who like your Page
  • People Reached: See the people your post was served to in the past 28 days
  • People Engaged: Find out who has liked, commented on, shared your posts or engaged with your Page in the past 28 days.
  • Once you know who your most engaged audience is, you can better tailor your Boosted Posts to them.
Tip: Target your Boosted Posts to your most engaged audience to keep them interested.
For example, Allison Park Store changed their Boosted Posts to be less focused on male interests like golf, once they learned that the majority of their fans were women
