Facebook launch new interaction metrics for Pages

Facebook have launched a new metric for pages, which shows how many people are ‘talking’ about the page.

New Metrics for Facebook pages

According to Facebook this new feature shows interactions with the Page over the last 7 days – anything from likes, to comments on wall posts to photo uploads.

I find this an interesting one as I feel it could have a number of effects on the way in which people start to use Pages and make judgements. If no-one is currently talking about a Page, will people be inclined to ‘like’ it?

On the flip side of the coin could this could encourage administrators to start over-sharing to try and push figures?

If you have any opinions on the new feature, please leave a comment below and we can start a discussion!
