Facebook API Timezone Conversion

Hi, I’m using the Facebook API Query Explorer to get data from FB business pages Insights into the Klipfolio data visualization tool. The business has a UK and US arm. For the UK dashboard I want to see data from Facebook by days in the UK so we can understand performance vs activity. However the API only seems to pass data in PST which does not correlate to UK business days. Is it possible to access a version of the API in GMT/BST? If not is it possible to convert the data to UK days which start at 00:00:00 and end at 11:59:59 GMT/BST? Thanks so much in advance!

    Hi Sian,

    As per my knowledge,Facebook provides the data only in UTC-8 timezone thus so we cannot pass timezone in the api query.  Workaround for this would be to pull larger sets of data for a wide time period from Facebook into Klipfolio. And then use Klipfolio properties option to convert the data into required timezone. You can change the timezone via the Properties panel while editing the klips that uses this data.
