Back in April, Facebook announced it was removing Facebook Analytics. This move officially occurred last July 1 as a way to consolidate Facebook’s business tools. The removal of Facebook Analytics doesn’t affect the insights section of either Facebook and Instagram. In fact, Facebook has stated that the same data, insights, and analytics are still available amongst their other tools such as Facebook Business Suite, Ads Manager, and Events Manager.
Filling in the gaps for those who opt-out of being tracked online, new features have been added to Google Analytics 4. These new features aim to increase usability and enable you to deep-dive into certain analytics to help you understand better understand your results. Some of these additional features include new navigational panels that help you switch between reports, expanded conversion modeling, and some brand new reporting options for your ads, including “Advertising Snapshot” which gives you a holistic view of conversion points from multiple channels.
To help its users and advertisers save time and maximise ROI, Microsoft ads has released a new advertising feature called Facebook Import. This new feature allows users to copy over their Facebook Audience network into the Microsoft Audience network, saving advertisers the time and effort. The new tool can either be used to complement your existing Google Import strategy, or as a standalone feature.
The latest ‘Reels’ video content on Instagram has become more of a staple on the platform. And because of the increasing popularity of Reels, the feature has also gotten its own Insights and ad space through Reels Ads. The format is still very similar to Reels in that the ads can go up to 30 seconds (double the length of your standard Instagram Story ads). These ads show up in the same space that users consume Reels, including the Reels tab, the Explore tab, Stories, and in the Explore page.
