For the same reason, it has brought several major updates as well removed some of the metrics.
Facebook has announced that starting on 30th April 2019, these metrics will no longer be available in their product interfaces or in the release of Ads Insights API v3.3.
So, here is the update what all changes are going to appear on Facebook:
Offers saved and Cost per offer saved
Facebook is removing offers saved and cost per offers saved metrics. Instead, they’re introducing a post saves that would serve as whole metrics in terms of measuring when the ads are being saved.
These new metrics will measure the number of times an advertisers’ ads were saved, also all offer ads save.

Facebook is removing the relevancy score metric instead they are replacing it with a new set of ad relevance feature which will be clearer and dynamic.

Messaging replies and Cost per messaging reply
Facebook is omitting Messaging replies and Cost per messaging reply and instead of that replacing it with a new messaging connections and a new conversation started.
The new messaging connections will include the metrics of new messaging conversation except for the older ones in the past. Messaging conversation starts measuring the number of time of people started messaging after at least seven days of inactivity.
Mobile app purchase ROAS and web purchase ROAS
Previously the ROAS metrics were channel-specific (i.e. mobile, web, on-Facebook). However, the customer path to acquisition should inclusive hence the metrics to ROAS should be inclusive and Omni-channel.
Hence, Facebook has consolidated all the channel-specific ROAS metrics into one, serving as a single platter for ROAS measurement, a holistic Purchase ROAS.
