An up-and-coming musician recently came to us with a quandary:
“How do I know how many ‘True Fans’ I have on Facebook”
The client had both a Fan Page and a Profile page with thousands of “fans/friends”. This final tally was critical in deciding how to estimate her Kickstarter fundraising target. codeDenver wrote a custom FQL script to determine who was in both the Profile and Fan page and subtract the duplicates. While simple in theory, the Facebook API did not include a way to determine this easily. We were able to code a workaround to determine the number of “True Fans” – 3,678. Voila! So bring us your Social Media challenges and we’ll hook you up!
