Facebook is one of the most important channels on social media for to many companies. But handle all the Data that Facebook give you by its API is very hard and sometimes confusing, but in this interactive report I will show you another way to see Facebook Insights using a clear and simple but strong design to help you see if your marketing efforts are going well. This is just one of another 7 reports I designed for Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Youtube and Instagram on Power BI. But Colors, Shapes and Charts is just one part of this report, behind you will see Power query data modeling, DAX formulas, relationships etc. I hope you enjoy it.

Great report. How were you able to calculate M/M and Y/Y percentage changes and make these dynamic based on the date range selected? Your help is greatly appreciated.
Hi Mykhael, I was fortunate to attend your demonstration on the webinar 'How to Design Visually Stunning Reports in Power BI' on Tuesday. I must say I am impressed with your work! I noticed that you seemed to be using links within a report using objects in the left-hand menu -
if so; could you describe how you would relate the menu to the report-sheets?
Thanks and kudos to you!
Right now there is not a way to use an object to link the report to another page... the left-hand menu you are talking about it's just a reference, to let you know the title of the data information, it's just a way to make the reports looks beutiful, BUT, nothing is impossible and we can emulate the effect and create a REAL left-hand menu that change the pages and relate them. But I am working on that. If I find out a very friendly way to make it real, I will let you know ASAP.
Until that happen check the report you saw in the webinar, as you can see is not a Slicer or anything that change the data or pages, is just a "reference" area.
Great job! I have one question.
Is there any way to grap data like gender or age from Facebook poll inside groups or events like on Sheet 4 of your report.
Thank you in advance.
1. How did you create the StoryTellers by city bar chart wih labels to the right of the bars? I tried using the legend, but my legend line items do not line up as well as yours to the bars in chart.
2. My tooltip on bar chart seems to only show 2 values. The [Vakue] field and only one of my items in the Axis list (the first item) Your tooltip shows items.
thoughts? Thanks again as always for your contributions and quick repsonses. Best
aswering your questions:
1. Select your Horizontal Bar Chart, then go to "Edit" (the yellow pencil located into the right panel), expand Y-Axis, and change the "Position" from left to right.
2. Can you show me a screenshot to understand quite better what you are talking about?
Sorry to replied you until now. Best
I designed this report in November 2015, in that moment I used an horizontal line as reference, but now you can align easyly from the visual tools "Format". 🙂
It is very easy, let me explain you.
1. Select the shape
2. Go to the Format Shape Panel (it's in your right)
3. Select "Line"
4. change the "Round Edges" Percentage
I hope this helped you, anything else let me know OK?
Congrats on a really beautiful report. I love the 1 to 20 navigation pane that you set up at the bottom of the report/dashboard and was wondering how you accomplished that. It's a really effective way to tell a story with data and I'd love to be able to use it too.
Congratulations for your dashboard @Mykhael
It´s amazing. Clear and very intuitive.
I would like to know how you calculate the forecast on page 19 and how you make the graph.
Hi Mykhael, congrats on that spectacular FB report!
Iam assuming that you are not using the FB connector on the power bi sources, right? Are you using fb page stats and loading it to a Database? Is it possible using power bi connector to build a report similar to yours?
My apologize, I remember I told you the FB connector is not good enough to creat a good report around Facebook Insights. I was totally wrong, you can create a better report than this one using the FB connector, How do I know that?, because I am working right now using it, and I can tell you... It's AMAZING!!!, So I change my answer...
The answer is YES you can, and BETTER than this.
Thanks for the comment! So the FB connector got improved? Ive been trying to use it since long time ago and had several issues. Are you able to connect to a fan page and get the feed connection? I am using it right now, and keep getting an error "Facebook: An unknown error occurred" . How are you using it that works so well for you?
