    Also, it looks like almost 50% of all people who like my page is from one country, which makes me think how is that possible, what's wrong...

    Maybe the reason is that I have set up low daily budget?

    Are you using a custom audience? Because i've found facebook ads utterly useless unless i specify the exact people i want to target ads

    Facebook doesn't go into too much depth when referring to "interests".
    If the user has simply likes a page with a title like "I hate it when cats fight" it will consider them your target audience.

    You should be very specific when targeting your audience with ads and also you should post content constantly (related to your target topic) in order to get them to start interacting with the page.
    This is because facebook gives a high priority to content from pages just recently liked.

    Yes, I've clicked like 15 countries and and people on my page are from 50% from one country.
    Could it be because the price of ad for another countries (like UK or Germany) is higher than the set up budget?

    That's exactly why, it will always go for the cheapest one.

    How long have you been running the campaign for? If you wait for a week or two, or maybe increase your budget you'll probably see more countries liking your page.
