Export all Facebook Posts

Every Analytics report comes with a CSV export of all the Facebook posts including:

  • Date and time of post
  • Text content
  • Post type
  • Links to the posts
  • Count of likes, comments, and shares

See more on the post exports here.

Exporting all Facebook Comments

Due to Facebook restrictions, our standard reports do not include all post comments, providing only the latest primary comments.

  • Latest Comments – the most recent comments for posts at the time of your report.
  • Primary Comments – comments relating to the original post. We do not index the comments on comments or threaded discussions.

Our bespoke team can help you index more primary comments for selected posts or date ranges. Exporting all comments will take longer and cost more than standard Analytics reports. Please use the Live Chat or leave us a message to understand more about indexing Facebook comments, the opportunities, and the limitations. Read more about exporting Facebook comments here.

Our Research Team

If you would like to use BirdSong Analytics for a research project but don’t have time to run the reports and do the analysis, our research team can help.

They regularly work with clients (large and small) to provide answers to questions that they have about how sectors and competitors are using Twitter.

If you have a project that you would like to discuss with our research team, please get in touch.

What does BirdSong Analytics offer the social media practitioner over and above Facebook’s own analytics?

You will be to access some useful data about your Facebook page, through Facebook’s own analytics tool.

For example, you will be able to look at:

  • Likes
  • Reach
  • Page views
  • Actions on page
  • Posts
  • Events
  • Videos
  • Fans by gender, country, city and language
  • When your fans are online
  • Post types

However, Facebook Analytics does not give you this information for accounts that you don’t manage or have not been given access to. This is where BirdSong Analytics can help. With our tool, you can buy reports to look at the Facebook Analytics for other pages and see how they are using the channel. This allows you to research the Facebook statistics for clients, competitors and other public accounts that you are interested in.

With our reports, you will also be able to:

  • Export all the posts and post data for these accounts and
  • Benchmark their fan numbers and engagement rates against other pages in the same category to see if they are under or outperforming their peers.

BirdSong Analytics is used by agencies, publishers, researchers, journalists, legal firms, data analysts, SMEs, charities, large corporations and individuals across the world.
