One way to measure the success of a post or video on Facebook is to check how many people have seen it. If they also interact with it, that’s even better. If you often publish video content on Facebook, here’s how you can check who watched your videos.
How to Check Who Watched Your Videos on Facebook
During a live broadcast on Facebook, you can go to the live stream management page to see who’s watching the broadcast. Unfortunately, after the broadcast is over, you can’t see who watched your video while you were live streaming. You can check the number of viewers but you can’t see who exactly watched your video.
As a workaround, you can ask your viewers to interact with you during the broadcast and leave comments on the video.
A recorded version of the broadcast will be available shortly after the live stream is over. Unfortunately, you still can’t see who watches it.
Facebook is constantly changing based on feedback from users. Maybe Meta will soon let users see who watched their videos after the live stream is over.
How Do I See How Many People Viewed My Facebook Videos?
If you shared a video as Public, the number of views is available below the video. But you need to use the Facebook app for Android and iPhone to see the number of views for your videos. Additionally, if you share a video on a Page, there are additional metrics that you can check from a desktop computer.
How to Check Video Stats on Facebook Pages
To check the stats for the videos shared on your Page, go to Insights. Then, click on Videos and check the data.
You can also check insights for individual videos. To do that, go to your Page, and select Publishing Tools (Meta Business Suite).
Then, click on Video Library and select the video you’re interested in. You can check various stats related to that video’s performance such as audience and engagement.
For example, you can check how many people reacted to your video, commented on it, and shared it. Keep in mind that these stats are available for videos with at least 100 views.
You can also check how many times your video was watched in its total length and the number of times the video was watched for at least 3 seconds.
You can only see who’s watching your Facebook Live videos during the broadcast. After the stream is over, you can see how many people watched the video but you can’t see their names. If you’re managing a Facebook Page, you can go to Insights to check the stats for the videos shared on your Page.
