[Publish] Why might there be a discrepancy between comments in the Posts Report and clicks in LinkedIn Analytics?
This FAQ relates to the Posts Report specifically for LinkedIn Profiles and Pages. General information on the Posts Report can be found here.
The Analytics we receive from LinkedIn only include the number of comments on the post itself, and not the number of comments on comments. This means you may notice a lower number of comments in Buffer Publish compared to LinkedIn Analytics. For example, if your post had five comments, and someone had replied twice on one of those, Buffer Publish would report a total of five comments, whereas LinkedIn would report a total of seven. Unfortunately, this is not something we can change right now due to this additional data not being available via LinkedIn's API.
