Facebook Insights

  • Facebook Insights makes it easy to analyze the performance of your content marketing in real time. So much so that I find myself drawn to check on a constant basis.
  • This is your best source to determine which type of content your audience engages with the most and which to promote. As a rule, I consider a post engaging enough to promote (or continue a promotion) if it is getting 4% – 5% Virality.

Virality

This refers to the percentage of people who have created a story (liked, commented on or shared) from your post out of the total number of unique people who have seen it.

Talking About This

Talking About This refers to the number of unique people who have created a story (liked, shared or commented on) from your post. This number is very important in determining the performance of your post: The higher the number of people talking about your post, the more engaged they are with it, and the more they are engaged with your brand.
