Facebook for Nonprofits: Insights
About Page Insights
Page admins are interested in understanding if people are engaging with the content they publish. To help them with this, Facebook provides Page admins aggregated anonymous insights about people's activity on their Page. Facebook users give permission for their Pages activity to be logged for Page Insights in the Information we receive about you section of the Data Use Policy.
The number of people who have seen your post. Figures are for the first 28 days after a post's publication and include people viewing your post on both desktop and mobile. Your post counts as having reached someone when it is loaded and shown in News Feed. Note that data from before July 2, 2012 only includes people viewing your post on desktop.
To sort your Page's posts by how many people have seen them, click Reach in the Page Posts section of your insights overview.
The number of people who have clicked anywhere on your post.
The number of people who have created a story from your Page post. Stories include:
Sharing, liking or commenting on your post
Answering a question
Responding to an event
Claiming an offer.
The number of people who have created a story from your post as a percentage of the number of people who have seen it.
Impressions measure the number of times a post from your Page is displayed, whether the post is clicked on or not. People may see multiple impressions of the same post. For example, a fan might see a Page update in News Feed once, and then a second time if their friend shares it.
Reach measures the number of people who received impressions of a Page post. The reach number might be less than the impressions number since one person can see multiple impressions.
