Are you tracking how many of your Facebook Fans hide your content?Facebook analytics

Whether you grow fans organically or via sponsored ads, you should monitor how many people hide your content from their content stream.

  1. On your Fan Page, click the "See All" link within your insights box on the left sidebar
  2. On your insights page, scroll to the bottom left graph & uncheck "Total Fans"
  3. The graph shows the total number of fans who hide your page's activity
  4. (Default drop down selections may need to be changed if these steps don't show the info)

If the percentage of people hiding your content is high, you may want to rethink what you're pushing to your fans.

Our fan base is a lot lower than many dealers as its cultivated organically - no ads, no invites - people "like" us on their own. (FYI: ~495 total fans as of today; 5% elected to hide our content - I can live with that)

No ROI, simply ROE. (Return on Effort)

Are you watching other significant analytics elements within your social sites?

I've seen other really put a lot of resources into theirs and not get anything, other putting minimal effort and getting an increase in traffic withg very low conversion rates and some having an increase in traffic and a significant increase in sales. Where does yours fall?
