Reach is total number of people who see your content and impressions are the number of time your content seen by people here a single content could be seen by a single user multiple times hence reach will be calculated on the basis of unique users whereas impression will be counted based on the view of the content.

Does not matter how much the followers you have on your social media pages, each content you published don’t served to all of your followers, so organic reach should never be calculated based of the followers.

Lets understand reach vs impression little bit deeper

Lets say you have 500 followers on your twitter account and you published a content, if we assume that each of your follower engaged with your tweet then your unique reach should be 500, however if one of your follower shared the post and again your followers seen that post than its impression will be 1000.

This is the reason impressions are always on higher side as compare to reach.

Hope this will make you understand the basic difference between reach vs impression.
