[Publish] Why am I not able to track my Facebook profile's follower count in Buffer analytics?
This article relates to the Analysis Report under Analytics.
We are a little bit limited in the statistics we can show by what Facebook makes available to us. We used to be able to get this information, although in April 2015 Facebook changed what was available so that the only follower count we could retrieve would be the number of followers you had that used Buffer (and, more specifically, had connected the Buffer app to Facebook). This didn't seem like particularly useful or insightful information to have and so we made the decision to remove follower counts completely to remove any confusion that might arise. Full follower counts are still available for Facebook Pages and Groups as before.
