📊 Data collection start

⏳ Quick tip: Once you've connected your or your competitor's social media page to NapoleonCat, allow a few hours for the analytics data to fill up. Good data, like good coffee, needs some time to brew!

Let's take a closer look at how it works for different platform:

  • 🔵 For your Facebook profiles, NapoleonCat rolls out the red carpet and automatically pulls in about 2 months of historical data

    ☝️ Just a heads up, only profiles you manage (not follow) offer data on the number of followers, Engagement Rate (ER), and Social Interaction Index (SII).

  • 🤳Next up, Instagram! You'll see approximately 2 months of historical data. The only hiccup? Historical follower data isn't available. But hey, no worries, you'll still get plenty of other data to play with!
