Complete Guide to Measure Metrics

This article summarizes the data collection rules for every network in Measure, as well as the KPIs, or metrics, available for each one.

Network rules describe the behaviors that apply to all channel or content metrics from a given network. This includes things like historical data limits, data refresh rates, and paid data availability. Metrics rules describe the metrics themselves, including definitions, formulas, and expected discrepancies with native reporting.

Both are necessary to understanding the data in Measure. Read on to learn more about how these rules shape your own results.


Getting Started

Understanding channel metrics and content metrics

Every network offers two different types of metrics: channel metrics and content metrics

Channel metrics show the data from your entire channel during the selected date range, including any new activity on posts published before the selected date range. These metrics can be found in the following widgets in Measure:

  • Key Metrics
  • Channel Comparison
  • Time Series
  • Network Comparison
  • Breakdown
  • Geographics
  • Demographics

Content metrics show the data from the posts published during the selected date range, including any new activity since the selected date range. These metrics can be found in the following widgets in Measure:

  • Content Performance
  • Label Performance

Channel metrics and content metrics should not be compared, even if they share a name. For example, the engagements metric in your Channel Comparison widget may not match engagements metric in your Content Performance widget because they are pulling their data from two different sets of posts. For the same reason, it’s not possible to isolate data that’s both from a specific set of posts and from a specific date range — these will always be two separate KPIs.

A Measure dashboard comparing a channel widget and a content widget. Both widgets use the metrics Engagements, Reach, Impressions, and Clicks, but the channel widget's engagements numbers do not match the content widget's, channel reach does not match content reach, and so on.

Understanding APIs and data discrepancies

Every network delivers its data to third-party platforms using an Application Programming Interface (API). For example, Measure gets its Facebook channel data from Meta’s Page Insights API.

A network might offer certain metrics on its own platform without making them available to API users. If a metric seems to be “missing” from Measure for a particular network, that metric likely isn’t available through the network’s API. However, there are many more metrics that networks only make available through their APIs, which means Measure is able to offer many more metrics than you would see natively.

Since networks don’t use APIs for their own reporting, there may be discrepancies when comparing a network’s data to Measure’s. How much data a network delivers over its API, and how often, can affect our results.

You can find explanations of some of the most common types of data discrepancies in this article, but if you’re still unsure, please don’t hesitate to contact Support.   

Facebook Channel Metrics

Network rules

How much historical data is available for Facebook channel metrics?

When you connect a Facebook channel for the first time, Measure backfills all channel metrics from the past 365 days.

How often is Facebook channel data refreshed?

Facebook channel metrics are refreshed with new data once every 24 hours at 7AM UTC.

Note:

In Meta’s Insights, channel data is not inclusive of the selected end date. For example, if you set your date range to January 1 - January 6, it will show you the data from December 31 - January 5.

Measure shifts the data back 24 hours to account for this: if you set your date range to January 1 - January 6, then you’ll see the data from January 1 - January 6. However, it will correspond to Insights’ data for January 2 - January 7, so please keep this in mind when comparing the two.

Do Facebook channel metrics include paid data?

Facebook channel metrics are delivered as a combined total of paid and organic data, including paid data from any Instagram or other Meta Platforms ad placements that are run through the Facebook channel. These totals cannot be broken down, with the exception of the following KPIs, which Meta also offers as paid, organic, viral, and non-viral metrics:

  • Net new fans
  • Impressions
  • Reach (daily)
  • Video views

Reach (daily) The number of people during the selected date range who viewed at least one of your posts.

Discrepancies: Meta delivers its channel-level reach data once a day, and Measure simply adds these daily values together to calculate total reach for the selected date range.

However, user data is anonymized before it's sent to us, which means that any unique user who views your posts on multiple days will be counted multiple times, skewing Measure's numbers higher than Meta's. For this same reason, adding together paid reach and organic reach within Measure may not equal total reach, either. 

Please note that total reach is still distinct from impressions, which would also include multiple views from the same person on the same day. However, if you'd like to avoid the influence of repeat visitors entirely, please use average reach instead.

Facebook Content Metrics

Network rules

How much historical data is available for Facebook content metrics?

When you connect a Facebook channel for the first time, Measure backfills all posts and their content data from the past 15 days.

How often is Facebook content data refreshed?

A Facebook post’s content metrics are refreshed with new data 15 minutes after publication and 150 minutes after each new engagement. Data refreshes continue on a regular basis for 28 days after an engagement, and posts are monitored for new engagements indefinitely. Lifetime data collection is complete at 28 days after the post’s most recent engagement.

Do Facebook content metrics include paid data?

Unless otherwise specified as paid, organic, viral, or non-viral, Facebook content metrics are delivered as a combined total of paid and organic data that cannot be broken down. Paid metrics specifically are sourced from one of two APIs — either Meta's Page Insights API, which also provides all organic and combined metrics and corresponds to the data in the Meta Business Suite; or the Marketing API, which corresponds to the data in Meta's Ads Manager.

Please note that all advertising on Meta Platforms is run through Facebook, so your Facebook results may also include paid data from Instagram, Messenger, or Audience ad placements. This depends on which API a paid metric was sourced from:

Paid metrics from Meta's Page Insights API

  • DO NOT include paid data from non-Facebook placements (except for Facebook video posts)
  • DO NOT generate placement icons on the post’s Promotion banner
  • DO NOT require a connected ad account in Advertise

There are only nine of these metrics:

  • Paid impressions
  • Paid reach (daily)
  • Paid video views
  • Paid video viewers
  • Paid video views (10s)
  • Paid video views (30s)
  • Paid video views (complete)
  • Paid video viewers (complete)
  • Paid watch time (minutes)

Screenshot 2023-10-03 at 10.05.37 AM.png

Paid metrics from Meta's Marketing API

  • DO include paid data from non-Facebook placements
  • DO generate placement icons on the post’s Promotion banner
  • DO require a connected ad account in Advertise

Whenever a Marketing metric and an Insights metric share a name, the Marketing metric will be labeled in Measure with (Ads). For example, the widget above shows Paid impressions, while the widget below shows Paid impressions (Ads), which includes additional data from the Instagram placements.

Screenshot 2023-10-03 at 10.06.54 AM.png

Note:

Notice that Paid impressions (Ads) + Organic impressions =/= Impressions. This is because the Marketing metric includes Instagram data, but the two Insights metrics do not. It's recommended that you don't compare data across metric types to avoid these kinds of discrepancies.

Tip:

All Marketing metrics are labeled with (Ads) in this article, whether they share a name with an Insights metric or not.

Reach

The lifetime number of people who viewed a post.

Discrepancies: Meta delivers its content-level reach data separately for each post, and Measure simply adds these values together to calculate the total reach for all content from the selected date range.

However, user data is anonymized before it's sent to us, which means that any unique user who views multiple pieces of content will be counted multiple times, skewing Measure's numbers higher than Meta's. For the same reason, adding together paid reach and organic reach within Measure may not equal total reach, either
.

Please note that
total reach is still distinct from impressions, which would also include multiple views from the same person on the same post. However, if you'd like to avoid the influence of repeat visitors entirely, please use average reach instead.

Instagram Channel Metrics

Network rules

How much historical data is available for Instagram channel metrics?

When you connect an Instagram channel for the first time, Measure backfills all channel metrics from the past 365 days, with the exception of the following metrics, which cannot be backfilled:
  • Fans
  • Fans by country
  • Fans by age and gender
  • Fans online by hour (available only for the past 30 days)

How often is Instagram channel data refreshed?

Instagram channel metrics are refreshed with new data once every 24 hours at 7AM UTC.

Note:

In Meta’s Insights, channel data is not inclusive of the selected end date. For example, if you set your date range to January 1 - January 6, it will show you the data from December 31 - January 5.

Measure shifts the data back 24 hours to account for this: if you set your date range to January 1 - January 6, then you’ll see the data from January 1 - January 6. However, it will correspond to Insights’ data for January 2 - January 7, so please keep this in mind when comparing the two.

Do Instagram channel metrics include paid data?

Unless otherwise specified as a paid metric, Instagram channel metrics are delivered as a combined total of paid and organic data that cannot be broken down.

Reach (daily)

The daily number of people who had a post from your channel enter their feed. Use the daily visualization or average to get accurate metrics. Views on Reels and Stories are included.

Discrepancies: Meta delivers its channel-level reach data once a day, and Measure simply adds these daily values together to calculate total reach for the selected date range.

However, user data is anonymized before it's sent to us, which means that any unique user who views your posts on multiple days will be counted multiple times, skewing Measure's numbers higher than Meta's. For this same reason, adding together paid reach and organic reach within Measure may not equal total reach, either.

Please note that total reach is still distinct from impressions, which would also include multiple views from the same person on the same day. However, if you'd like to avoid the influence of repeat visitors entirely, please use average reach instead.

Instagram Content Metrics

Network Rules

How much historical data is available for Instagram content metrics?

When you connect an Instagram channel for the first time, Measure backfills all posts and their content metrics from the past 14 days, with the exception of Stories, which cannot be backfilled.

How often is Instagram content data refreshed?

After you publish an Instagram post, its content metrics will be refreshed with new data 15 minutes after publication and 60 minutes after each new engagement. Data refreshes continue on a regular basis for 180 days after an engagement, and posts are monitored for new engagements for 14 days after publication. Lifetime data collection is complete at 194 days after publication.

Story data is refreshed once, one hour after the Story expires (25 hours after publication).

Do Instagram content metrics include paid data?

Instagram content metrics are always organic. However, for promoted posts, all data is paid, even though the metrics themselves are not paid metrics. This is a result of how Meta creates Instagram ads, which must be run through a Facebook channel. Only the Facebook channel will offer paid metrics. 

Please also note that boosting an Instagram post always creates an identical Facebook dark post. For Reels, all paid data is delivered to the paid metrics on the corresponding Facebook dark post – with the exception of the paid data for likes and comments, which is delivered to the organic metrics on the Instagram dark post.

This can be a challenging topic. For more information, please see our dedicated guide: Viewing Promoted Instagram Posts in Measure.

Note:

The results for an Instagram carousel post represent the combined data for all images in the carousel. For example, if someone swipes through a carousel with ten images, it will only count as 1 impression, not 10.

Profile visits* The lifetime number of visits to your profile from the post. Image, Video
Reach The number of people that saw the post/story/reel in their feed. Use the the average to get accurate aggregated number of people reached on average per published post.

Discrepancies: Meta delivers its content-level reach data separately for each post, and Measure simply adds these values together to calculate the total reach for all content from the selected date range.

However, user data is anonymized before it's sent to us, which means that any unique user who views multiple pieces of content will be counted multiple times, skewing Measure's numbers higher than Meta's. For the same reason, adding together paid reach and organic reach within Measure may not equal total reach, either.

Please note that total reach is still distinct from impressions, which would also include multiple views from the same person on the same post. However, if you'd like to avoid the influence of repeat visitors entirely, please use average reach instead.

Network Rules

How much historical data is available for X (Twitter) content metrics?

When you connect a X (Twitter) channel for the first time, Measure backfills all posts and their content metrics from the previous 7 days.

How often are X (Twitter) content metrics refreshed?

After you publish a X (Twitter) post, its content metrics will be refreshed with new data starting 15 minutes after publication and continuing on a regular basis for 30 days, at which point lifetime data collection is complete.

Do X (Twitter) content metrics include paid data?

Unless otherwise specified as a paid or organic metric, all X (Twitter) content metrics show a combined total of paid and organic data that cannot be broken down.

Promoted posts will show a promotion banner after their first paid impression. This may take up to 24 hours to be reflected in Measure.

Note:

X (Twitter) bases its content data off the performance of both a post and its comments, while Measure shows the content data from the original post only. This keeps X (Twitter)'s KPIs consistent with those used by all other networks, allowing you to accurately compare your X (Twitter) data with data from other networks. However, this means you cannot accurately compare Measure's X (Twitter) data with the data in X (Twitter) Analytics, which uses a fundamentally different definition of content performance.
