Facebook | Video Post Standard Dataset
<! -- ChannelMix Monitor Blue Paper --> <! -- GA4 User Guide -->
Below are the measures and dimensions that ChannelMix considers standard for the Facebook - Video Post dataset. There is a 0 day lag and data is pulled for the last 60 days at 0230 Central Time and then an additional schedule runs at 1300 Central Time that pulls data for the last 3 days in order to provide video insights after the prime social media posting time, which is around 1200. Most post/video engagement happens within the first 48 hours (sometimes even within the first 5 hours), depending on the size of your brand, quality of the content, etc., so this schedule ensures that you have the most up-to-date data without actually being real-time.
This dataset can be automatically activated without a ticket through Dataset Activation.
