Deprecations & Breaking Changes

Page Insights API changes - metrics deprecation

With the migration of all Facebook Pages to the new Pages experience, the Page Insights tab for classic Pages has been fully deprecated as of November 1, 2023. As part of this deprecation we are also deprecating 89 Page Insights metrics.

We are providing a 90-day notice to developers that these deprecations will be implemented on March 14, 2024, to give ample time to make any changes that are needed in preparation for this update. Once they are deprecated, the API will return an invalid metric error when calling any of these metrics. To avoid disruption to your business, please review the list of deprecated metrics to ensure your business transitions from using these.

With these updates, we are improving the quality of the metrics we are providing for the new Pages experience on Facebook and reducing confusion and inconsistencies that may have resulted from these deprecated metrics.
