  22. 22. Insights for your Page On the left hand side of your page (from an administrator’s account) by the fold is a Insights area This provides detailed feedback about your likes, post feedback, demographics of users and how many people looked at content on your page like photos and videos This is a great tool to use to see how your users react to particular offers, deals or information you post This is also a great tool to see what type of people might be interested in your business
