Recently Facebook updated their app to have an in-app browser. Previously, clicking on web links bumped the user out of the FB app and into their device browser. Now the user is kept inside the Facebook App with a handy header bar at the top ensuring users naturally find their way back to their news feed.
My question is, does Google Analytics record pageviews from in-app browsing differently to normal device?
If the answer is "no" my second question is, If not, why not?
Part of me thinks it would be useful to know if a site is being viewed through the browser loaded inside the FB app, another part thinks treating it separately would dilute the facts. Therefore, maybe the in-app/not-in-app data should be a separate metric. Maybe that's already recorded! Ahh this question's got messy. Any thoughts appreciated.
