    I know that it's getting tougher and tougher to get outreach on FB.

    Before with good post lots of people can see it - know they want you to pay.
    But anyway till 10 days ago we were able to get around 100 likes on our posts and with best ones 6K outreach. So it was not that bad.

    Now for same kind of posts we averaging 60-70 likes, and 4K outreach.

    And seems like our fans base growing slower, than before.

    Any tips?

    I am not sure whether they doing it intentionally or its a bug in their system, I am also facing kinda same issue with their PPC system. They are charging more then what maximum CPC is set to be,hence less outreach at same cost.

    Facebook deliberately reduced organic post reach so that the page owner runs ads campaign to reach all their fans and there by netting revenues for FB. Very bad step IMO.

    duzap yea, you have probably only video page, because reach is less only on video post. Maybe fb have something bad changed, because i have 200 000 clicks on post and only 400 000 reach? WTF! Everyone know that important for reach is clicks on post, if i have on picture 200 000 clicks reach is 800 000+. But i think this reach will be less on picture too, i am waiting for another reach update for pictures.

    Definitely happening to me too. Reach is 5-8 times lower. I used to get 500K views and now only about 70k. It first started around 12-13 January and lasted for a month. Then is went back up for 10 days and since 3rd of March it's terrible again.

    Hi All, not sure if it happened also to you. But today the posts reach, post likes/comments and new organic likes to the pages increased once again. So probably that was only ~1 week of abnormal reach. Now seems to be all back as it was until february.

    Looks like they want everyone to pay that $7 to "promote" their post to reach over 90% of their followers.

    That's true :( People spend a lot of $$$$ with Facebook ads to get new fans and the those fans don't see the updates. That's crazy. I have a business page that has organic + ads fans (no *hat fans) with 56K fans and only ~1800 - ~2000 people view the posts.
    And people also complain that they don't see the updates in their walls... that's crazy :(

    Last week the reach was ~900 / ~1000. Twice less.

    On March 8th and 9th, facebook had extraordinary reach, where most of my links went from an average reach of 2-8K to around 50K - 80K. Basically links were getting the same reach as photos did. I even had one link that got to 108K reach. Then on march 10th, facebook killed it, and now my reach is back to what it was before, if not slightly below the original number. On those 2 days everyone was making a ton of money through facebook. I suspect its because they changed their news feed on march 8th.
