The figures that will help you understand how your content is performing on Facebook. Lifetime Total Likes tells you exactly how many people like your page, Daily Friends of Fans tells you how many friends of those total likes can be reached — your true total reach. And, Daily Page Consumption tells you the number of people (out of the possible number of people who could have been reached) that were actually reached.
