Explanation of how to find your Facebook Insights on your business page: You need a Facebook business page to see Insights, it is not a service Facebook offers for personal profiles. Go to your business page and click on Insights at the top of your page. Go to the People tab on the left side of the page. There are three tabs on this page and each tab has some different data. You can also look at content data on your Posts tab.
