Facebook is adding new labels to their metrics tool and an education program in order to provide businesses a more concrete understanding of their latest marketing feedback.
Clearing the fog
The social media platform is adding clearer labels within Ads Manager to differentiate between estimated metrics and those in development, providing clearly calculated stats.
Sampling and modeling help estimate the metric data, which can than provide a guide for ideal outcomes that would usually be difficult to quantify.
For example, “reach” is a breakdown of people seeing an ad, instead of reporting how many times an ad has been seen by the same user, giving more accurate readings on individual ad awareness.
Metrics in development
The new “in development” tab requires metrics that must determine the strongest insight, meant to pivot alongside evolving feedback from perspective businesses.
Facebook has also removed 20 ad metrics that were reported as unhelpful or redundant. The result is more actionable insights for the improvement of ad performance.
The platform’s new ad program Measure What Matters will help advertisers focus on their own objectives using research, analysis, and best practice.
