    I'm only working on one account, no automated software for this project.

    No clicks, no activity, when I post links I'd usually get hundreds of visits within minutes but now I get zero.

    Checked the page from a different PC, different user, everything's there, not getting deleted or ghost banned far as I can see. My reach is dysmal too. All this changed in the past 48 to 72 hours.

    Have I f'kd up? Or has FB changed something big?


    EDIT
    --------


    I also notice that on the personal feed linked to this page the people showing up have changed. It's showing 10 or 15 posts from a same person in a row.

    This is what made me suspect a FB timeline algorithm change and I think it's broken.

    I believe so..every new account I didn t use before asks for security check and the only option to bypass it is to upload photo id !

    FB reach has been declining steadily from what I read here on the forums. Some people said they've been getting less than 1% organic reach.

    FB is just like Google: they want you to pay for ads. And everything they're doing is pointing towards that.

    I lost 18 accounts today. I've not lost an account in months! I thought it was something I did but I'm generally very careful with accounts. These are also accounts that haven't been logged into for about a week. I also noticed duplicate posts down the feeds.

    If Facebook are reading this ... I'm sticking my two fingers up and creating 50 more accounts.

    Hmm.. my aged facebook accounts are still working fine. However I do noticed a drop in reach. It seems that you have to pay to advertise to improve on the reach. Time to head to other social network for marketing?

    My aged Bots are running fine, but the Fan Page reach is in the toilet. Facebook is Google :D They are all pay for play now.

    Facebook did announce they would be doing this some time ago. I'll see if I can find the article. Nope. It was months ago and from a very reliable source.

    Facebook is making you pay for ads if you want any visitors at all. I used to get a lot of organic traffic and engagement from my fanpage but now nearly none

    i have almost given up with facebook now, the reach is low unless you pay ever increasing amounts. Could it be the effect of adblockers so facebook is finding other ways to make more money

    So the general consensus is something changed, just not now but months ago?

    For me it changed last sunday. Checking analytics it shows a steep drop in FB referrals.

    It changed when Facebook said "SCREW Y'ALL WE'LL BE MAKING BANK". Unfortunately this is where the rabbit hole goes, just as they changed Instagram feed and everything else. They're out there to make money and they'll be forcing us to pay for reach and advertisements.
