    Just curious as to if you pay for ads will fb kill your organic reach.

    Thus trying to make you pay for engagement instead?

    No it does it. From what I seen in the past (Have not used FB ads in more than a year) it used to help my reach. For some reason, my organic reach was up 34% when I was running an ad on my page vs when I was not running any ads.

    For smaller pages, I used to run ads at $3 a day just to keep my organic reach higher.

    Definitely not, that would not be nice tactic from them, would it :) people would catch on and they would complain...
