Facebook announced it a few months ago, and now it’s live for most of us : Facebook now updates Insights data in real-time. Well almost. The updates are every 15 minutes AND not all the Insights metrics are updated in real-time. To be precise, most aren’t.

So here is below the full list of the Facebook Insights metrics that are currently available in real-time through the API. Most are also available through Facebook Insights.

As you will see, all the metrics updated in real-time are related to the posts of the page, not the page itself (except one).

Question is : what are you going to do with these ?
In our opinion, except if you’re using an external Facebook Analytics solution with dedicated real-time features, they are pretty useless.

What’s your opinion ?

    Incredibly useful, almost necessary to decide which posts to run media behind.
