One of the most well-known insights for Facebook Pages is probably the “People Talking About This” metric. It has been used extensively by social media marketers as a digital marketing tool since it was first introduced, back in late 2011. It basically represents the number of people that engaged with a page (through likes, comments, shares etc.) over a 7-day period.

Facebook went on to explain how the PTAT metrics have been split in separate elements: Page Likes, People Engaged (the number of unique people who have clicked on, liked, commented on, or shared your posts), Page tags and mentions, Page check-ins and other interactions on a Page. For more information regarding Facebook Insights, you can visit the official thread in Facebook Help.
