Page Insights: Utilize Page Id, Page Name, or Page Category to gain a macro-view of your audience's demographic or to drill down into the minutiae, such as specific reactions to individual posts. Cohort analysis through Year, Month, or Week metrics can reveal temporal trends in Page engagement.
Post Analytics: Investigate Post Id, Post Created At, or Post Type to dissect your content strategy. Are certain types of posts—like videos or updates—resonating more with your fans? By analyzing Reactions per post or Shares Count, you can quantify which posts fuel virality, promoting brand reach.
User Engagement: Metrics like Fan Count and Comments Count help quantify your Page's audience growth and interaction level. Benchmark Engagement rates using likes, comments, and shares to refine content and ensure it aligns with user interests.
Looker Studio enhances these metrics by offering various visual representations, from simple bar graphs and pie charts to complex scatter plots and geographic maps.
