Severity Score Breakdown

EdgeRankWith the launch of our Negative Feedback Analysis feature, we revealed a new metric: Severity Score. There are a variety of different types of Negative Feedback, each type differs in severity. The score weights these types of Negative Feedback to give perspective into how bad the feedback really was.

xbutton > hide > hide all > spam > unlike

We have weighted the Negative Feedback and divided against Total Unique Impressions to give relativity for the number of people who saw it.

Negative Feedback Analysis

Facebook recently made a significant change to the EdgeRank algorithm that increased the importance of Negative Feedback. As a result, understanding Negative Feedback is now an integral component for optimizing EdgeRank, and keeping at bay any negative impact on your content is more important than ever.

Negative Feedback Analyzer enables marketers to quickly understand how Negative Feedback impacts their content, and offers insight on how to avoid future Negative Feedback.

We built Negative Feedback Analyzer to answer a few
key questions:

  • How much Negative Feedback does my content typically receive?
  • What is the normal amount of Negative Feedback that Pages in my industry receive?
  • How many fans are now unreachable because of prior Negative Feedback?
  • How is Paid Media influencing Negative Feedback for my content?
  • Which topics are creating Negative Feedback?
  • What specific content is receiving Negative Feedback?
  • Of the different types of Negative Feedback, what is the severity of my Negative Feedback?
