More Page Metrics For Facebook Graph API
Facebook has been on a quest – to make the Graph API the best it can be. In that tireless pursuit, the social network has added a number of new features and functionality to the API to help developers get the most out of Facebook. The latest update to the API isn’t groundbreaking, but it will be useful nonetheless.
The latest update coming to the Graph API are two new page metrics for benchmarking. The feature was announced in October as part of Facebook’s rollout of global brand pages. At the time, Facebook had this to say about it:
Now the feature is available in the API, and Facebook has some more information on the feature. For once, the metrics included in this first iteration are like count and PTAT (people talking about this). Facebook will take this information and allow brands to compare it to other brands to see which products are being talked about more on Facebook. To access this new information, just hit up the new‘global_brand_like_count’ and ‘global_brand_talking_about_count’ fields on the Insights object.
As for the weekly bug report, 288 were reported and 37 were fixed. Facebook has also accepted 72 bugs for further review. You can check out the full list by hitting up the blog post.
