Facebook changes its features and functionality on what seems like a weekly basis, so it can certainly be difficult to keep up with what’s new. As a result of a slew of recent changes, you may not have noticed a number of updated features that give you more control over your Facebook page and, by extension, your Facebook marketing efforts.

Consider this your cheat sheet. If you’re not already putting these features to work on your Facebook page, now is a great time to start.

Regularly checking these numbers can help you fine-tune your content so you can post information that resonates with your page’s audience and their connections.
