Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I asked the following question on Stack Overflow, but it was closed: Is there a metric for visits?

Where would this question be appropriate and could I get it answered? It is not a programming question on the Facebook API, but rather it is about which metrics to use. I thought it was a valid question.

Since it seems you're asking about the API Stack Overflow would be, I'd think, the proper venue. You should clean up your question and make it clear(er) that you're asking about the API.

Facebook questions, in general, belong on Web Apps, unless they're about programming.

But I did ask it on stack overflow and it got closed! Are you able to answer it? – John Ritchie Jan 31 '13 at 14:54
No, I can't. Incorrect closures happen sometimes. That's why I suggested you edit your question so that it can be re-opened. – Al E. Jan 31 '13 at 15:35
OK Al, I have edited this, will it appear as re-opened eventually?… – John Ritchie Feb 1 '13 at 11:13
Did you vote to re-open? Did you leave a comment that you edited it to be more in line with the guidelines? It's not an automatic process, you know. People have to vote to re-open. Did you read the FAQ about closed questions? – Al E. Feb 1 '13 at 13:39
