About Social Post Reports

When you post to Facebook or Instagram from Mailchimp, we’ll create a report to show you how your post performed. Monitor your post's reach, impressions, likes, shares, and other key metrics without ever leaving your Mailchimp account.

In this article, you'll learn how to view and understand social post reports.

View Social Post Reports

Reports are available for organic social posts. We’ll also create reports for auto-posts to Facebook and auto-posts to Instagram sent with regular email campaigns.

To view a social post report, follow these steps.

  1. Navigate to the Reports page.
  2. If you have more than one audience, click the Current audience drop-down and choose the one associated with your social post.
  3. Click View Report next to the social post report you want to view.

A report for an auto-post will include the name of the email campaign.
