Understanding impressions

Impressions are the view count for a LinkedIn post or Tweet, not just if it was shared or engaged with. Impressions estimate Twitter views and LinkedIn views based on data we collected and analyzed for over a year. With this data, you can better understand how well your content is getting in front of your team’s network and the visibility it’s receiving.

We calculate impressions with the following equation

Impressions = (60 x number of engagements) + 25

  • For every engagement, the user gets 60 impressions.
  • If there are 0 engagements, the user receives 25 impressions.

🔷 You may see different numbers on the direct platform. This is because we can't directly capture those but as soon as networks allow us to, we will provide that information to you and update this article.
