Where is my Followers metric in Facebook Insights

The current Facebook Insights API does not include Followers as an available metric at this time. However, we have these items in the current integration:
  • TapClicks Likes: Page Fan Adds
  • TapClicks Unlikes: Page Fan Removes
  • TapClicks Total Likes: most recent data from database for Page Fans
Because Facebook's current API does not provide a calculation for the Followers metric, you can try one of these workarounds:
  • Use TapClicks Likes in the place of New Fans.
  • Create a calculation subtracting Unlikes from Total Likes to give you a net new value.
