Frequently Asked Questions

What are Facebook Instant Articles?

Facebook Instant Articles is a custom framework that allows content from publishers (your website) to “load instantly,” on Facebook. Instead of fully loading your website, instant articles use special pieces of code to increase the rendering speed. This can lead to analytics and tracking issues, which is fixed with the MonsterInsights Facebook Instant Article addon.

Why do I need Facebook Instant Article tracking?

By default, Facebook Instant Articles does not integrate easily with Google Analytics. You may be getting more traffic to your Facebook Instant Article posts and pages, but it’s impossible to get detailed data when all your page and post titles are lumped together in your analytics as “Facebook.”

How do I Track Facebook in Google Analytics?

Simply enable the Facebook Instant Article addon and all the traffic from Facebook will show up inside Google Analytics. MonsterInsights makes it incredibly easy to track Facebook instant articles inside WordPress, with only requiring a single click to enable accurate tracking.

Does Facebook Instant Articles work with GA 4?

Yes, the MonsterInsights Facebook Instant Article addon works with both Universal Analytics (UA/v3) and Google Analytics 4 (App + Web).
