Have you been running ads on Facebook for your business? If so, you’ll be glad to know that Facebook’s new metrics have been improved to allow users to have a better look at their analytics. Here we’ll discuss why Facebook made the change, and how these new metrics will benefit you.
What Is A Relevance Score?
Relevance scores are what Facebook used before they implemented new metrics. How do you know if your ad performed well on Facebook? The relevance score was a measure of how relevant your ad was according to your target market. It gave digital marketers a clear idea of how one ad performed in relation to another, concerning its quality and significance. You could also set your campaign objectives to see how well your ad performed. For example, according to your objectives, your score could include clicks, conversions, views and engagement. You could also choose to see the negative side – how many users chose to hide your ad.

If your ads are performing the way you expected without having to delve into these metrics, then you have nothing to worry about. As far as you’re concerned, your ads are successful. However, if your ads aren’t performing, these metrics can help you get a better insight into how Facebook advertising works, and how you can improve your efforts.
