Analyzing your audience

The Audience tab in Buffer Analyze displays information on your audience demographics, such as age, gender, and location. This allows you to learn more about the people that matter to your business, and in turn, create content most suited to them.

Although audience data for Twitter is available when viewing native Twitter Analytics, this data is not made available through Gnip, which is Twitter's enterprise data service that we use. Therefore, the data available within the Audience tab is limited to Facebook and Instagram. We really apologize for any inconvenience.

Start by selecting the social network you'd like to analyze on the left hand side of your dashboard, and then selecting the Audience tab.
