New Free Tool That Shows Fans Reached On Facebook Page Posts: Minilytics By PageLever

New Free Tool That Shows Fans Reached On Facebook Page Posts: Minilytics By PageLever | NYL - News YOU Like | Scoop.it

Excerpted from review article on TechCrunch:

 

"Pagelever, a popular Facebook analytics company, released a new, free tool called Minilytics today. The company claims it is the first tool that lets users measure how many fans see their posts on Facebook pages.

 

Two weeks ago Facebook released a new metric in the API that counts fan’s post-views.

Once the new metric was released, Pagelever co-founder Jeff Widman and his team built the free tool measuring how many fans see a Facebook post, as well as answering other questions for users, like when are the best times to post, best types of posts and “who are my fans.”

 

Widman says the tool lets users see which page views are from fans who have already “liked” the page, rather than combining fan views with those that come from viewers who land on the page but aren’t fans.

 

He notes that this data is particularly important for pages that are growing quickly or that have large numbers of targeted ads..."
