Historical Facebook data

In Facebook Quickstart, am trying to edit a card for Fan Growth in 2016 data but you cannot edit the date range beyond "All-time" (which is the date you signed up). It just says "no data exists". Any help / ideas?

    Hi there!

     

     

    It looks like the Facebook quickstart datasets that are powering the cards behind the scenes default to bringing in between 30-60 rolling days worth of data. So generally speaking you'd only be able to see data as far back as the dataset is pulling each time it refreshes. 

     

    In order to change the range of data you see, you'd have to adjust the days back each Facebook dataset is pulling. This would allow you a greater range of dates to choose from.

     

    Let me know if this is helpful. Happy to provide additional clarification if needed.
