While that's not a new concept for marketers, not having the metrics clearly labeled as being estimates has caused confusion, Facebook found.
These metrics provide guidance for outcomes that are hard to precisely quantify.
"We had always talked about reach as estimated, but people didn't know it", he said.
The Button Clicks metric shows the number of times people clicked the call-to-action button on your ad.

The changes come after the company admitted a series of measurement problems in a span of almost two years and has heard from advertisers that they want more clarity around how its metrics are calculated. "That one thing that got cleared up pretty quick in our heads, but then we're like "okay, so now you have to tell the world".
