We expanded and reorganized profile dashboards for Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn to give you total access to your profile metrics.

For every channel, we’ve separated profile and post metrics to make it easier than ever to see how you’re doing on social. Never miss a follow, CTA click, or critical demographic information with new private profile tabs.

Profile-level engagement metrics

We’ve loaded up your Page/Profile tab with new views and breakdowns for insight into who’s engaging with your profile and how.

Graphs of page views by day and page CTA clicks by day appear in our new private social dashboards

This new panel breaks down your Page Views and Page CTA clicks by day. Identify exactly which days are resulting in lots of Page Views to see how seasonality, ad campaigns, or dynamic content affect your traffic on social.

We break down your Page CTA clicks by type so you can see if you’re seeing more fans looking for your website or directions than usual. Seeing a day with tons of views and CTA clicks? Be sure to click back into Social Posts to see what’s driving so much traffic to your Facebook Page.

Analyze private metrics with Post Tags

Post Tagging helps you analyze exactly what matters most to you, so we’re thrilled to roll it out for private posts–and LinkedIn! We hope this update will help you see exactly what’s happening in your posts by analyzing your reach, impressions, video views, and other private metrics using Post Tags.

Select from more than 130 private post metrics when analyzing your tagged posts.

If you’ve been using Post Tagging for your public posts, we’ll bring over all your currently tagged posts and future posts using Auto-Tag Rules. Choose from our dropdown of more than 130 private post metrics to go beyond engagement totals to measure your impressions, reach, and more.

An example of tagging LinkedIn posts

Welcome to the Post Tags family, LinkedIn! You can now add tags to any of your LinkedIn updates and analyze using all the in-depth metrics available for Facebook Insights, Instagram Insights, and Twitter Analytics. Just click the “+🏷” button for any post on any channel to choose from an existing tag or create a new one.

Next-level metric customization options

We know many of you work hard to customize your social media metrics in Rival IQ, so we’re rolling out tons of new tweaks to help you take more control over your data, like every kind of engagement rate, more customizable columns in your favorite panels, and an easy-to-search metrics finder.

We now display engagement rate by impression, follower, and reach so you know exactly how your content is resonating with your fans.

An example of a table using three different engagement rates

For the same post, the engagement rate by Page Fan is just 0.31%, the engagement rate by reach is a whopping 6.45%, and the engagement rate by impression is 4.76%. The details of your analysis really matter, and now you have more control than ever over how you’re analyzing.

Sorting hashtags by a minimum number of posts is now available in private social dashboards

Can you spot the “min. Tweets” dropdown at the top right corner of the above panel? You can now set a minimum number of tweets, updates, or posts to make sure that the Popular Topics or hashtags you’re reviewing in private data are of the highest relevance to your brand.

Even more good news: customize your columns in just about any table throughout the app–no need to be constrained by our defaults! And don’t forget to use our easy-as-pie metrics search dropdown when customizing tables or custom dashboards to find exactly the metric you’re looking for.

How to access new private social data in Rival IQ

Private social data is now available in all customer and trial accounts in Rival IQ. Just access any channel in “Your Private Data” to get your hands on all the latest metrics.

Remember that private data is available only to those with admin or analyst access for Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or LinkedIn and isn’t available competitively, so get ready to dive deep on your brand’s performance. And a quick reminder that you can analyze multiple handles of private data simultaneously with admin or analyst access.
