I am brand new to google analytics and have no idea what I'm doing.
I want to know can I use google analytics to track conversions from my facebook campaigns ... and if so how do I do this ?
Thank you so much in advance.

Hi Ryan, Yes, you can track conversions from facebook in GA.To do this - you need to first go to the Conversion section of GA -->Goals--> Overview. Then create an advanced segment with source - facebook.com. It will help you to see all the goal conversions led by facebook in a single report. See the attached pics to do it by yourself. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
Hi Think B, thank you so much for your help I really appreciate it.
I have done this and understand how it works now I think
The analytics look incorrect thought... it seemed to work for a day and then it has stopped recording data even though the ad is still running and getting conversions ...
I will attach screen shots in a shared dropbox folder ... sorry I don't know how to put them in here ...
I'm not sure what else to add to be of assistance ... I feel like I understand how to get the data ... now I need assistance understanding why it's not collecting Data correctly, I am also about to email my webmaster to see if they can help. I use a platform called rainmaker to tun my site and they do everything for me I just give them the relevant information ...
