Title: What to trust Google shortner analytics or Facbook insights ?
Post by: etdigital on 08-21-2017, 06:17:53
hello everybody,
I do social media posting everyday on Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter, and Google+. And since two weeks Iam using google shortner for tracking the engagement to the post I shared.
But when I check Facebook insights it shows 2 clicks on the post and Google shortner analytics shows 26 clicks.

So which data should I use to track?

Hi, i also noticed this discrepancy (maybe not that huge!). The visit counter on my websites give more credit to Google's values.
