And Facebook makes it easy by providing Insights for your page.

One way to know if your page is doing well is to compare your results to similar-sized pages in your industry.

Quintly studied the key Facebook data points & created this infographic to show engagement metrics based on the size of a page.

From these numbers, page managers can identify where they've improved & where they're falling behind.

I think you'll dig some of these juicy Facebook stats!

Is Your Facebook Page Better than Average?

New call-to-action

Average Number of Fans (Likes)

facebook-statsDo you have more Likes than the average Facebook page your size?

>> Click to Tweet <<

  • 1-1k Fans: 361
  • 1k-10k Fans: 4,022
  • 10k-100k Fans: 38,212
  • 100k-1m Fans: 360,793
  • 1m-10m Fans: 3,121,474
  • 10m+ Fans: 24,511,752

Unfortunately, 1k to 10k is a pretty broad range. And so is 10k to 100k.

How Evenly Spread are Your Likes, Comments & Shares?

This next stat looks at the type of engagement.

  • 1-1k Fans: 100% Likes (zero comments & shares)
  • 1k-10k Fans: 82% Likes, 9% Comments, 9% Shares
  • 10k-100k Fans: 80% Likes, 7% Comments, 13% Shares
  • 100k-1m Fans: 82% Likes, 5% Comments, 13% Shares
  • 1m-10m Fans: 85% Likes, 4% Comments, 11% Shares
  • 10m+ Fans: 90% Likes, 2% Comments, 8% Shares

These figures show that we shouldn't get upset when Likes on our posts largely outnumber comments & shares!

It also appears that the larger a page gets, the fewer comments & shares the page owner should expect.

This is probably because fans don't feel as personally connected to large pages. Coke, for example, has a hard time connecting with the 89 million people who Like the page!

Level of Interaction

facebook-statsThese Facebook stats are alarming!

>> Click to Tweet <<

We all think all our fans care about our page & want to interact with our posts.

Not true!

  • 1-1k Fans: 1.18% (down from 1.43% in 2013)
  • 1k-10k Fans: .52% (equal to 2013)
  • 10k-100k Fans: .31% (equal to 2013)
  • 100k-1m Fans: .17% (up from .15% in 2013)
  • 1m-10m Fans: .15% (up from .12% in 2013)
  • 10m+ Fans: .11% (up from .08% in 2013)

Pretty discouraging, eh?

The good news is that if your page is getting more interaction -- you're kicking ass!

Interactions per Post

These numbers were also shocking.

  • 1-1k Fans: 4
  • 1k-10k Fans: 22
  • 10k-100k Fans: 118
  • 100k-1m Fans: 610
  • 1m-10m Fans: 4,646
  • 10m+ Fans: 25,808

How does your page compare?

People Talking About This

Many people question the value of the People Talking About This metric -- commonly known as PTAT.

  • 1-1k Fans: 9
  • 1k-10k Fans: 124
  • 10k-100k Fans: 1,934
  • 100k-1m Fans: 12,604
  • 1m-10m Fans: 96,715
  • 10m+ Fans: 440,649

Number of Posts Per Month

facebook-statsPeople will probably always debate about how often a page should post.

Here's a few of the average monthly figures:

>> Click to Tweet <<

  • 1-1k Fans: 8
  • 1k-10k Fans: 24
  • 10k-100k Fans: 52
  • 100k-1m Fans: 107
  • 1m-10m Fans: 137
  • 10m+ Fans: 67

Smaller pages only post 8 times a month -- huh?!

That's 2 posts a week!

You'll never be successful posting such a small amount of content.

Posts from Users

I don't think people post on pages as often as they used to.

Here are some stats from the infographic:

  • 1-1k Fans: 0
  • 1k-10k Fans: 2
  • 10k-100k Fans: 16
  • 100k-1m Fans: 74
  • 1m-10m Fans: 209
  • 10m+ Fans: 502

I'm even OK with a page not allowing users to post. I've thought about eliminating user posts from the Post Planner page to control the spam that we always have to remove.
