Facebook Page Insights is part of Facebook's graph application programing interface, or Graph API for short, for the data associated with your Facebook page. Facebook's description of the Pages Insights Api states: "The Graph API is the primary way to get data into and out of the Facebook platform. It's a low-level HTTP-based API that apps can use to programmatically query data" Using our Google Data Studio connector you can query the data associated with any Facebook page you have access to. You can find out ages and genders of users along with a wide range of engagement metrics.
