Analyze Facebook Reactions with NapoleonCat

Reactions, introduced by Facebook in February 2016, give its users more possibilities to express their opinion and emotions. At the same time brands gain extra knowledge on users sentiment towards the content they publish. But Facebook hasn’t yet released in-depth analytics of individual reactions. So, how can marketers measure them and make use of this knowledge? As of now NapoleonCat bridges the gap and provides marketers with detailed analytics of each type of reactions on Facebook. Make note however, that posts published before the 1st of August will still include likes only.
