What is firebase?
“Firebase uses an event-based data model, which results in reporting differences compared to those in Google Analytics. Unlike Google Analytics which has many screenview- and session-oriented reports, in Firebase all reports are user- or event-focused.”
Who should consider Firebase?
“Firebase is a mobile development program. If you’re going to focus on monitoring your app, Firebase is a mobile-focused app that monitors behaviors that occur often with mobile apps. It is tailored more towards app behaviors.”
