What data is included in Facebook analytics?

Vidyard will collect view counts for any video that:

  1. Has been pushed to a Facebook page that has at least 30 likes (views will be not collected from videos pushed to timelines); AND
  2. Has been watched for a duration of 95% or greater

Note: due to a limitation of the Facebook API, view counts must be gathered based on the above parameters.
