New Feature Lineup:

Boosted Post-Detection

Ever wonder how often your competitors are boosting their posts to increase reach, engagement, and followers? You’re in luck because we can help you find out! Our new Boosted Post-Detection feature uses machine learning to predict whether a competitor likely boosted any given organic Facebook post. In Social Posts, we will label posts that are likely boosted. Additionally, a page-level filter allows you to view only likely boosted posts or exclude likely boosted posts. These filters allow you to do a complete analysis of Facebook activity easily, whether paid, organic, or a blend.

In addition to the ability to benchmark organic vs. boosted engagement to see if they have better, more engaging content, or if they’re just paying for it, you can see what content they’re choosing to boost. When you know what content your competitors are boosting, you have a good indicator of key campaigns and what content they think is most important to promote.

Boosted Post Analytics

Rival IQ connects the organic and paid results from your Facebook Boosted Posts into a single, seamless interface. In Facebook Insights post analytics, you’ll see boosted dollar amount, organic/paid breakdowns of engagement, engagement rates, consumptions, and video viewing.

Boosted posts are a critical component of your overall social strategy. Now, you’ll be able to show the actual impact of your actions. If you’re not already boosting posts, you should be. Boosting your posts increases your audience and the likeliness of breaking through the noise.
