    It's all about prioritizing posts!

    This is how it works:

    1- Facebook displays your content to a maximum of 15% of your fanpage. They do this so they can make money of people using the "promote post option".

    2- Now that 90% of your fanbase won't even see what you're posting, it doesn't stop! Facebook wants their users to stay within facebook so it will prioritize content that won't require them to leave.
    This means text post, images, videos, notes or links to other stuff inside facebook (other pages, apps etc.).

    3- Trusted links still have a high priority but below that of images etc. The exact figure varies but it's about 50% of you're total "potential" audience.
    (I'm talking about wikipedia, youtube, ebay etc.)

    4- Here's where Facebook has ruined it! External website linking to places that don't appear on facebook often get almost completely brushed off the news feed! We're talking 10% of the first 15% I mentioned at the start. Yeah it's crazy!
    So if you have a page with 10,000 Likes and you post a link to a website which could be unknown for facebook, you can HOPE that 100 people will get that in their news feed, let alone follow the link, click etc.

    I hope this clears us a couple of things. Facebook has become greedy! It does everything it can to make as much money as possible.
