Facebook IQ at Your Fingertips

It should not come as a surprise to anyone that Facebook is collecting mounds of data on its more than 2 billion active monthly users. I recently learned from an article in Adweek that the company’s data are made available to any user through its Facebook IQ website, which was relaunched earlier this week.

In addition to white papers and success stories from Facebook, Instagram, Messenger, and the Facebook Audience Network, the site also includes Insights to Go. From the site, you can choose from the following dropdowns:


  • Global
  • North America (U.S., Canada)
  • Europe, Middle East and Africa (U.K., France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Middle East)

  • Automotive
  • Beauty and Health
  • Beverage
  • Consumer Packaged Goods
