    Has any one with Fan pages noticing the trend Facebook is doing -

    You have a decent sized fan page with like 200k members, it's one of those easy pages like "I hate my ex girlfriend" blah blah..

    Facebook seems to block the feed, then move the page to community pages, for no reason at all even if you have never made a post. It has happened to all my pages with random names on various accounts, none of my generic keyword brand pages have been touched at all :S Only problem is promoting generic keywords is near impossible.

    I think the days of the "random" style fan pages are soon to end.

    Do they take away ownership of page from you? see below

    Under the Create Page, there is:

    Community Page
    Generate support for your favorite cause or topic by creating a Community Page. If it becomes very popular (attracting thousands of fans), it will be adopted and maintained by the Facebook community.

    "block the feed" means you are not admin anymore and you cannot post anymore?

    they have always doing that ( or at least when fan page are renamed to business pages) and that was never allowed. You see that more now since people realized that pages are better than groups not much time ago and started to make tons of such pages ...

    Pages are intended to promote a company, brand, person etc... so it's nothing surprising they are stopping usage of those pages on a way different than that

    lol, I just saw that they have changed "create a page" page. hm..

    hm... so this means if it become popular you'll basically lost admin power over it and Facebook community ??? (what that stands for) will take it over..

    Let me get this straight. Is FB taking over these pages and forcing them to become community fan pages even if you created them as an "official fan page" ?

    If you create an "official fan page" after 10,000 it needs authentication to prove that it represents a real business not some random talk...if u authenticate it and it is approved, it continues as just as you want with feed and all things...if it is disapproved it will be converted to a community page and feed will be removed from admin...if u create a community page from beginning it will post feeds till a certain number of fans and then you can't post on feed as admin...So it is basically the same! Community pages get feed blocked after a number of fans like the official unauthenticated pages..
