Social Media Metrics

The Social Media Metrics dashboards provide high-level insights from the project's social media accounts and list of target search terms (keywords, hashtags, and so on). Social media metrics are organized into the dashboard types outlined below, which can be viewed by data range, such as 30 days, 90 days, 6 months, and so on. By default, the Twitter Overview page is displayed when you navigate to the project’s social media metrics dashboards.
