New Facebook Analytics Tool Digs Deeper Than Insights. A webpage owner has seemingly unlimited choice in products that slice and dice information about those who visit his or her page.
Real time? Personal? With a heat map? No problem. Facebook page managers, however, don't have it as easy. The Google Analytics of Facebook is called "Insights," and for someone who is dealing with the typical Facebook fan page, it's a sufficient meat-and-potatoes analysis tool. PageLever shows impressions (any time a story loads in a browser, whether on your page or not) for any date range, not just month or week. Most of the data, says co-founder Jeff Widman, comes from Insights' API but is not necessarily visible within the Insights dashboard.
How to Measure Your Facebook Engagement. Are you wondering if your Facebook content is connecting with people?
Building a compelling Facebook fan page is one thing. Creating consistent engagement is a whole other skill. In this post, my intent is to bring to light several areas you may be overlooking that are causing your fan page to either plateau or not get off the ground much at all. To know more about Facebook engagement, check out this two-part post here and here. The News Feed Many businesses set up a Facebook fan page and look to their fan growth rate as the primary success metric.

Facebook Adds Websites, Social Plugins, and Demographic Analytics to Insights. Facebook today announced a major improvement to its analytics tool Insights.
Page and Open Graph website admins will now be able to see real-time data about the performance of their Like button and Comments Box social plugins; the age, gender, language, and country demographics of their visitors, and which pages of their website are most popular. Admins of websites that aren’t integrated into the Open Graph can now claim their site and receive analytics about organic sharing of their content on Facebook. The expansion of Open Graph analytics will allow web publishers to gain more actionable data about how to optimize their Facebook integrations, and will draw more sites to add Facebook functionality.
Facebook will migrate all admins to this new version of Insights in two months, so all admins should export their existing data to retain access. Insights for your Domain Now, when admins visit they’ll see their Pages, apps, social plugins, and claimed websites.
