Facebook admits to data errors on pages.

Starting in September, IMEG and many other Facebook page administrators noted that page reach seemed to be trending sharply downward.  After several months, Facebook has admitted that it's data on page reach and impressions has been flawed since September. This was because Facebook was updating it's mobile apps for iPhone and Android to make them run faster, and as a consequence, sent only enough data to the mobile apps to make them display the newsfeed correctly.

According to Techcrunch, as individual users upgraded to the new apps, their activity was not reported back to Facebook (and page administrators) making it seem that all of those mobile app users had dropped off the face of the earth.  Content was delivered as usual, but reach and insights did not reflect that. Another second bug caused double counting of desktop newsfeed ads ( as both organic impressions and paid impressions).  In short, the data has been unreliable for several months with the bugs just being found and fixed last week.

Starting this past Monday, February 25, Facebook reports the bugs have been fixed and correct data will be flowing into Page Insights. Some have reported that numbers appear to have soared since Monday. Facebook added further information in this post on their Facebook studio blog.  We will monitor the situation and changes in reported data for all of our clients.

I imagine a world where, every day, people wake up and live an inspired life and not just exist. In a world where people think for themselves, in a world where people constantly become a better version of themselves every single day and live in their telos.

I am fascinated by human behavior, human potential, business, teleology, psychotechnology, travel and goats. I have devoted my life to the study of human behavior, challenging status quo and inspiring others to give up fear and excuses to be who they really want to be.

I am best known for marketing, work ethic and thinking differently. I am fascinated by leaders of today and the past who have made great impacts on society. I am dedicated to lifelong study, personal achievement, constant growth and inspiring others to take action to get what they want.
