Facebook adds “view shares” to help page admins track viral activity

I’ve been using third-party services like OpenStatusSearch.com for several months to track social mentions of The Palm Beach Post.

Now, Facebook has added this tool to its own Insights for page admins, and today I saw it in action for the first time.

Clicking on “View 1 share” brings this pop-up box:

Facebook isn’t showing me anything I could not find through a regular search on Facebook or another website. Lisa Isler-Karney’s post is public, just like a blog post or a tweet, because of the Facebook privacy that setting she chose. But it’s a nice perk for a Facebook page admin to see the sharing activity right from our own Wall.
