    Hey :)

    I have a facebook page with 125k+ likes but has left it without any posts for over a year. Now when I post new posts, they reach only 1 person out of all fans and i assume this is actually me :( Is this normal??

    Thanks

    Butlimous,

    This does sound odd especially with that many connections. There could be a lot of factors including the activity of the accounts connected to the page, a lag in updating data, and Facebooks' own algorithm deciding not to show your posts to people connected to the page because it has been inactive for so long. I would just give it some time.

    Maybe you can find some more answers here,

    Best,

    Do you have any interaction on your posts? (likes/shares/comments)

    No interaction at all on the posts. Likes are 100% real as in 2012 i was getting a lot of likes when i posted images.

    It's the third day in a row I post and the reach is always 0 but i some posts appear on my newsfeed. If i buy llikes and comments on individual posts, would that increase the reach and cause posts to be shown to other fans ?

    Thanks
    Regards

    Exactly the same situation, just a bit smaller group.
    I didn't touch it for a while and it's dead now.
    What to do?

    It is because the activity on your page is very low ,you don't post very often or you're not able to engage people on your page's post.

    If you ask me it is very low, like 9 to 12 talking about this.

    I finally found what was going wrong :) I used an app that posts automatically to the page but it was in sandbox mode so all posts were visible only to me as the developer

    I'm sure if you keep posting, it should increase by time...but compared to 2012 and before, it's much harder for posts to reach fans
