Facebook provides you with these two different tools for advertising, power editor and adverts manager. They both contain similar purpose but function in different ways. Power editor you can say gives you an idea about how your advertisement is doing based on the number you see.
How do you get to power editor?
This is the same way that you do, for Adverts manager. You click on the drop down menu next to your account name. You then click on manage adverts, it takes you to another page where you find power editor as an option.

Once you click on it, it’ll take you to the next page where you have the name of your campaign, the status of it, that is whether it’s active or not. The next column you see is delivery, which tells you if it’s delivering the kind of results you want or if it’s inactive.
After this it says results; it gives you the number of conversions you’ve got through your ad. The next one gives you the cost for the number of conversions you’ve made. That is if you’ve made any.
Next column says reach: it basically gives you the number of unique audience that your ad has reached out to.
Impressions: this is the audience that your advertisement has been shown to them, it could be multiple times and would be considered as that many number of impressions. For example, one particular ad is shown to one person and the same ad is shared by one of his friend and the same ad is visible this person again then this will be considered as two impressions.
Clicks: Followed by the number of clicks you got for the advertisement. That is the number of people who were interested and looked into your advertisement.
