Facebook Page Insights Now Include Real-Time Data; Data Back To July 19, 2011

PageInsightsRealTimeData650Facebook introduced two updates to its page insights aimed at giving page administrators a much clearer picture of both the present and the past.

Page insights now feature real-time data (pictured above), rather than only being available for two to three days prior to the current date, and the social network said all metrics displayed in the tabs for overview, reach, posts, and likes will now contain real-time data, except “where your page likes came from.”

Page admins looking to the past can now see all data for the likes, reach, and visits tabs back to July 19, 2011 (pictured below), the day page insights was launched, rather than the 89 days’ worth of data that were previously made available.

Facebook said the two updates are currently available to page owners globally.

Page admins: Are these two updates helpful?
