How Far Back Does Our Social Listening Go?

Updated 4 weeks ago by Annabel Youens

New users often say to us, "I've just signed up. How far back will AE be able to listen?" The answer will be a little different for each social network. Here's a quick look at our Basic Social Listening activities.

Remember AE only goes back the first time a member signs in.
