Facebook engagements figure per post (Supermetrics for Data Studio)


I'm trying to arrive at an 'Engagements' figure for each post. While this is available in Facebook, I can't find a way to access it in Data Studio. Here are the steps I've taken:

  1. Created a table in Data Studio
  2. Added the Facebook Insights data source
  3. Added some dimensions (thumbnail, message, link to post, post type, date)
  4. Added some metrics (Reactions, Comments, Shares, Total Reach, Engagement Rate)
  5. I tried creating a custom field using 'Total reach*Engagement rate (% of reached people who clicked)' but the figure this gives is lower than the one given in Facebook

What am I missing? Is this data available? Is there a way for me to calculate it to arrive at the same figure provided by Facebook?

Any help gratefully received.



  • there something similar for blog posts?  I've been trying everything but with no luck.
