    • APPENDIX
    • Engagement Score Engagement is the measure of audience responses to a brand's content and activity on a social network. To calculate the engagement score, we weigh audience interactions on brand content such as Likes, Comments, Shares or Favorites, Replies and Retweets based on their importance. We then divide their weighted sum by our estimate of the number of brand fans and followers who actively receive and view such content. Formula Facebook Engagement Score Formula   ( No. of Likes  +  x  ×  No. of Comments  +  y  ×  No. of Shares )  ×  10000 ____________________________________________________________ Audience Reception Rate   Twitter Engagement Score Formula   ( No. of Favorites  +  x  ×  No. of Replies  +  y  ×  No. of Retweets )  ×  10000 ____________________________________________________________ Audience Reception Rate   Linkedin Engagement Score Formula   ( No. of Likes +  x  ×  No. of Comments )  ×  10000 ____________________________________________________________ Audience Reception Rate    The default Unmetric values for x and y are 5 and 10 respectively.   Audience Reception Rate The Audience Reception Rate (ARR) is the Unmetric estimate of the number of brand fans/followers who stand to actively receive and view a brand's content. The formula you see below calculates the Audience Reception Rate as a function of the number of brand fans/followers raised to a fixed power value of 0.8. Audience Reception Rate = (Fans or Followers) 0.8
