Hi @Jess M,

 

You can learn more about the operation of Data Studio here

 

If you are wanting to track site visits from social media sites to your website, you would first create the URL for Analytics tracking, then share that link, and then pull that data into Data Studio. Use a different URL for each social site, etc..

 

Kind Regards,

 

James

Does anyone have a Date Studio Social Media Report Template?

Use the same visit metric you would use for non-social, and then apply a social filter (medium = social usually works pretty well). You likely want users as your metric. To make sure you're capturing all your social activity, make sure all your social posts are tagged with utm tags so that GA knows for sure that it's social (often GA can tell the visitor came from social, but sometimes, particularly from mobile devices, the indicators get dropped if there aren't utm tags).
