My understanding is the views is views from ActiveRain. Short URL clicks are from shared sites.

The short URL was debunked years ago as it "goes bad" after a while. So I have only used the full URL in posts. So, I'm not sure if the posted links count too or just members and visitors? GREAT QUESTION. ActiveRain Member Support to clear it up I expect.

I believe if you a short url and insert the post into FB it does reflect those views as well. At least, that is how I have understood it Peter.

You have a Member Support answer.
I do not share AR posts on other media. I only share my WordPress posts.
So are you asking, do you get around the same or unequal stats from either of the 2 sources?
If I enable Short URL Views . . . which if it's a listing I usually do . . . I will get far more from FB if I boost the post, and less if I don't.
AR is for presence . . . to be unforgettable. LOL
