Even with the rise of Instagram, TikTok, Snapchat, and LinkedIn, Facebook has managed to hold the top spot as the world’s most-used social platform.

I do marketing audits for brands all the time. When I ask them what’s the most important social channel for them from a business perspective, over 90% say Facebook.

Millions of businesses have used and are still using Facebook to transform their business. Facebook offers much more than that.

Are you a local business? You can use your Facebook page to book appointments with you directly.

Are you a brand? You can connect with your audience all the time, thanks to Facebook.

Are you a famous personality? You can add your loyal followers in one place easily.

Brands prefer periodic Facebook page audits to get the best out of their Facebook account. 

You need to revise your marketing strategy persistently and that is possible with timely social media audits.

Auditing a Facebook page is often the first step. As simple as that term may sound, the answer to how to audit a Facebook page involves craft, skill, and science.

An easy way to do it is by creating a Facebook audit checklist. Although the checklist may vary according to your business needs, the idea is that it should be able to help you improve your social media KPIs.

Here are some questions that you can try answering with an audit:

  • Is my Facebook page generating enough social traffic?
  • How does engagement on my Facebook page compares against my competitors?
  • What was the most popular content in the last, let’s say, six months?
  • What type of posts received the maximum engagement?

Just so you are clear, by Facebook audit I DO NOT mean Facebook Ads audit. It’s a completely different game which I shall try to answer some other day.

Here, I will focus on showing you how to quickly analyze your Facebook page. I have curated 6 free Facebook tools you can use anytime to perform a quick Facebook page audit.

With Vaizle’s free Facebook audit tool, you can do a quick competitive analysis with any one of your competitors. Enter your and your competitor’s Facebook page URL, and you will get a comparison of your performance versus your competitor’s Facebook page performance.

It fetches the last 28 days of data. It shows how many fans were added in the last 28 days and their country breakdown. Then it shows data of brand activity, brand engagement, and top-performing posts in the last 28 days. It also gives an engagement breakdown into likes, comments, shares, and reactions.

You can think of this tool as a Facebook page analysis tool. On the plus side, you can analyze any page.

2. Facebook Insights

Nothing beats Facebook insights. Direct from Facebook, fast, and complete.

Facebook Insights is more detailed than all the other free Facebook analytics tools combined. And rightly so. It’s Facebook’s own data. Plus it shows everything from fan analysis to content analysis.

You can check the total reach, total page views, video views, and how people interacted with your content. And there’s no limit on the time period of data. You can view your data since the day you started and export it in Excel format.

Unfortunately, there’s one major drawback. Facebook Insights does not help you perform a competitive audit. You can only check your data and not your competitors.

3. Social Bakers

SocialBakers’ free Facebook audit tool is more suited for competitive analysis. You enter your own Facebook URL and your competitor’s Facebook URL. Or you can enter your brand name and select one from the suggestions. Then they ask you for your personal details before sending you the final report via email in a designed PDF format.

The report is more detailed than others. It covers everything from audience analysis, audience growth percentage in the last month, engagement analysis, and content analysis.

4. Cyfe

First of all, Cyfe is not a free tool. Not even a marketing tool. It makes up the list because offers a completely free plan and has a dedicated dashboard for social media. You can use Cyfe to create a quick dashboard of your Facebook data.

In its free plan, you get two dashboards, one user, and 30 days of data history.

Once you sign up on the tool, it asks you to connect your Facebook page. It then fetches all the data from your page of the last 30 days and shows you in the dashboard. It shows all the third-party as well as the user-owned data from reach, impressions, and engagement to top posts, demographics, and new page likes.

5. Iconosquare

Iconosquare is a social media analytics company that provides analytics and benchmarking for most of the popular social media platforms.

They also have a free Facebook page analysis tool that you can use the analyze the performance of your Facebook page. It comes complete with actionable tips to improve your Facebook page performance.

While this is great, it suffers from the same drawback as Facebook Insights. There is no competitive analysis. You may be holding an in-depth analysis of your Facebook page but would still be scanning the internet to know your position among the competitors.

6. Sociograph.io

As luck would have it, I found this tool as I was trying to update this blog post. You probably won’t find Sociograph’s free Facebook analytics tool on the internet until you type its name.

Anyways, it’s a powerful free tool for a quick analysis of your Facebook page.

In just one graph, it shows you all the posts you have shared on the page, reactions to it, shares, and comments. Innovative, isn’t it?

You will also see other derived metrics like total reactions, shares, and comments per post. This data is accompanied by post types which are categorized into photos, videos, links, statuses, and events.

This is followed by analytics of all the posts that you have shared in the past few months. For every post, the Sociograph shows your reactions, shares, and comments along with the data on which it was posted. Interestingly, you can also sort the posts in descending or ascending order for each metric.


Just five you say? Well, there aren’t many free Facebook audit tools in the world anymore. If you know any, please share it in the comments below and I would love to add it to this list.

Anyways, whether you’re a business owner, social media manager, or account manager at an agency, I am confident these tools will be enough to give you an edge over someone else who’s not using it.
