"FACEBOOK REACH" METRICS

LATEST POSTS

Recent posts with Likes and Comments sorted by date (latest posts first).
Description
We use Engagement to rank your Facebook content. Latest Posts widget sorts posts by time of creation. Most recent posts are at the top.

Post Engagement is calculated using the sum of weighted user actions. We applied different weightings to actions. Because comments, for example, are more valuable than Likes.

Post Engagement = Likes x 1 + Comments x 20 + Shares x 30
Tips
We recommend placing Latest Posts widget in your most frequently used dashboard. As each post shows actions of users (likes, shares and comments), you can always spot user activity as soon as it takes place. By commenting back or thanking your visitors for likes or shares you dramatically increase Engagement rate and boost popularity of your account.

To increase level of Engagement, make sure your dashboards are refreshed frequently. Free accounts do not update dashboard data more than once per day. For real-time dashboards, switch to a premium Octoboard account.

IMPRESSIONS AND REACH

Impressions and reach of your Facebook page content over time.
Description
Impressions are the number of times a post from your Page is displayed. People may see multiple impressions of the same post. For example, if someone sees a Page update in News Feed and then sees that same update when a friend shares it that would count as 2 impressions.

Reach is the number of people who received impressions of a Page post. Reach might be less than impressions since one person can see multiple impressions. For example, if a person sees a Page update in News Feed and then sees that same update when a friend shares it that would represent a reach count of one.
Tips
Combine Impressions and Reach counters with Engagement. If you are a marketing agency or a business, we recommend including them in your regular scheduled reports for your clients or organisation marketing department.

PAID VS ORGANIC REACH

Paid vs Organic reach over time.
Description
Reach is the number of people who received impressions of a Page post. Reach might be less than impressions since one person can see multiple impressions. For example, if a person sees a Page update in News Feed and then sees that same update when a friend shares it that would represent a reach count of one.

Reach is called Paid if people received impressions through paid advertising (Facebook Ads). Organic Reach metric only counts people who visited the website through "organic" or non-paid leads.
Tips
Watch both metrics to understand how effective your Facebook Ads are. For more insights into paid traffic, we suggest trying out to our Facebook Ads Dashboards.
