Share Analytics provides data on when a particular post was shared, who shared it, how many clicks and engagements were received, and if the content was branded or not. You can answer network-specific questions, such as what shared posts receive the most engagement on LinkedIn and what shares aren't performing well.

🔹 This is available on the Teams, Enterprise, and Unlimited plans.

🔸 This feature is accessible to Admin.

Data availability

Here are the two main items to consider when expecting data to be available once an action is taken. 

  • Actions taken within EveryoneSocial, such as connecting a social network, are seen almost immediately in reporting.
  • Actions taken outside of EveryoneSocial, such as clicks and likes, are seen within 24 hours. This is because analytics runs on an Extract, Transform, Load (ETL) to format and arrange data for reporting—and it’s a scheduled process. As soon as the next day rolls around, you should see data regarding external actions.

Each report has a focus and that focus determines what data is pulled. Consider the examples below. 

  • Shares report pulls data for shares made during the selected timeframe. If the report was pulled for the last 7 days, then it displays data for what occurred on shares made during the last 7 days. 
  • Posts report pulls data for posts published to EveryoneSocial during the selected timeframe. If the report was pulled for the last 7 days, then it displays data for posts created in the last 7 days. 

Using the examples, if a post was created 8 days ago and it was shared in the last 3 days, then you would see data in the Share report but not the Post report. 

Report filters

Dashboard and downloadable reports will only display data that meet the selected filters and time frame.

Date, department, and location filters are available. Filters work on an "or" basis. For example, the image below shows data within the last 30 days from users in the "Engineering" Department or "Chicago.”

Remove filters by clicking the X next to a department or location or clicking Clear Filters.

Actionable items

🔹 If a trend surfaces around a topic or source of shared content that performs well, pull in more of that content and teach Moderators what’s performing well.

🔸 Identify the Groups (i.e. content topics) that the highest-performing shares come from. This gives insight into what topics tend to be most relevant so that the content marketing team can create more content around popular topics.

🔹 Identify engageable posts receiving a lot of shares so you can work with the content marketing team to drive even more traffic to these shares, work with the person sharing the content, and potentially go viral by getting lots of eyes on shares performing well.
