What does the metric "talking about" translate to?


I do not understand the metric on my Socialinsider page that says “Talking about”. Anyone care to enligthen this newbie? :sunglasses:


I think it’s the amount of mentions about your brand you get elsewhere on facebook. But i could be wrong.


People Talking About This is the number of people who have created a story from your Page post. Stories include:

  • When someone Likes your page
  • Sharing, liking or commenting on your post
  • Answering a question
  • Responding to an event
  • Mentions your page
  • Tags your page in a photo
  • Checks into or Recommends your page
  • Claiming an offer

So in a nutshell, whenever someone does one of the actions above – and it results in a news feed story being generated – then your page’s ‘People Talking About This’ number goes up by one.
