Right now due to the problems about privacy on Facebook, Facebook has decided to trim the amount of data the Facebook Audience Insights tool can give. It only gives insights about people who have liked a page. This change has caused problems for several people. But despite these changes, one can use alternative ways to learn about their audience. These alternatives are inside the offerings like Facebook Analytics and are available to those who know how to find them. The changes do not change the fact that Facebook is still a powerhouse for giving insight when one can find them. Although the Audience Insight tool can still give lots of information, but one can only use it when he has much likes on a page. Without that, there is no way it can give much information. This is when Facebook Analytics will come into play.
- So many people are going nuts over the loss of insights that have occurred with the recent changes to Facebook Audience Insights tool.
- The tough change that came to the Facebook Audience Insights tool is that it can now only give information about the people who like a page.
- Despite the vanishing details that the Audience Insights tool used to give, there are now lots of ways one can work around that challenge.
