As it currently exists, Facebook Analytics is a free analytic tool, that Facebook users can access from their browser or the Facebook Analytics mobile app. Facebook Analytics is extremely beneficial and used amongst business owners today, to understand how individual users interact with their business website, Facebook profile page, app, or additional supported event source.
The large social media network announced on Tuesday, March 31, 2021, in their Business Help Center Post that through June 30, 2021, Facebook users will still be able to access essential reports, export charts and tables, and explore insights. After June 30, 2021, those reports, charts, tables, and insights your company loves to analyze, will be gone. So make sure the date of June 30, 2021, is marked on your calendars now.
Stressed out yet? Don’t be. Until June 30, 2021, Facebook users can export data into a CVS file right to a computer desktop. Identified data can be exported simply by clicking on the arrow in the top-right corner of each chart or table you want downloaded.
