  • I like this feature more than the @mention, which I use but, you are correct, most don't understand. I'm already wondering if it will improve article/site sharetracking or if fB is planning to increase their metrics (Insights) and maybe charge for them or for a premium version of Insights? Great find! ~ Donna
