How to measure social media engagement

There are several ways to measure social media engagement, including:

  • Likes, comments, and shares on a post
  • Audience growth and rate of followers.
  • Followers vs. following ratio.
  • Active fans.
  • Organic vs. paid engagement.
  • Setting S.M.A.R.T goals and building a social media dashboard.
  • Defining your audience and calculating engagement rate as a percentage of your audience.

To calculate engagement rate, divide the total number of engagements (likes, comments, shares, etc.) on a post by the total number of post views (impressions), and multiply that number by 100.

It’s important to define your audience and calculate engagement rate relative to your number of followers, but keep in mind that not all followers will see each post.

There are also several tools available to track social media engagement, including Google Analytics and Databox.

It’s important to track the metrics that matter most to your business based on your goals, and to adjust your strategy accordingly.
