    Recently one of my big pages got hit with a content violation. It was from content that was posted over a year ago? The picture was of a popular female dj in a bikini, regardless it was removed without issue. However the next day my page was unpublished. I appealed and within a day they reinstated it. The problem is now the page is almost useless.. what interaction I had before is gone. When I post, the reach has dropped by about 90%. Prior to this unpublishing I had no issues (although I know others have had reach issues etc). Is it possible they are limiting this page specifically? Has anybody gone through something similar after a page being unpublished?

    Best,
    Rolls

    Do you think you've done a thorough enough test of this reach penalty? In otherwords, has this been consistently down for many posts? It's possible that you've been hit with a penalty (most likely short term) as your content might be looked at more sensitively after the violation.

    What sort of content are you posting? Videos/pictures? Where did you get the content from? Facebook publicly states that original content is more valuable. If you're downloading videos from other facebook pages and reposting, this isn't "original". We've found that we were able to break this trend by concentrating on unique content and after a week or so of this the ropes seem to loosen a little.

    It's very possible that when you hit a copyright penalty, Facebook starts a manual review process of your content for a short period to ensure you aren't doing anything dodgy. During this period, reach numbers might be harder to achieve.

    Let us know how you're going in a week or so.

    Socialbutterfly1 thank you for that thorough reply. Yes it's been consistently down for all my posts - just on that particular page. Content hasn't been changed; it's still links to sites I own however I am continualy monitoring it to see if it will rebound. Thanks for the input.
