    facebook is forcing business owners to pay for the ads :) no wonder why in kuwait all the focus is on Instagram.

    Yup, Its the trick of Facebook, They need us to buy the ADS for the promotion of our pages.

    All the online services are using the drug dealer strategy. Get people hooked on the service for free, then start charging loads for it.

    Worst part is some search engines are doing the same to the WWW....

    Yes, the reach has gone down 3x-5x in my pages too this month. There was an announcement made by FB last week regarding a huge algorithm change designed specifically for FB pages, that will be released in January.

    I find it amusing how marketing teams can always come up with a plausible explanation for price increases.

    "Yeah well as you know gasoline is a very limited resource and so to protect the environment we've decided to raise gas prices to $ 10 a gallon."

    This is a trend among internet companies. The amount of bullshit people believe is simply stunning. "Yeah uh ummm we'll be limiting commercial page reach to raise the quality of news feeds" as if there was ANY quality to the trash shared on news feeds at all to begin with.

    Yeah it sucks,reach dropped by 90%. The funny thing is that i am not selling nothing,not using click-bait shit.It is just from one day to another dropped a lot.Beside i had a good interaction rate...now FB is just not showing my posts to people.
    To pay for ads...in case it would be worth it i would.But to reach extra 1-2000 people for 5$...it is a joke.

    It's happening to all of us buddy! Facebook wants you to buy to boost your post. They first want to get paid by adds, so you get likes by paying facebook. Then you charge you to reach the likes you earned -_-

    This could be to increase their revenue or it could be that you are having fake followers who are not sharing your content and which could not be reached to targeted customers.

    Facebook is not good anymore for free promotion. But paid promotion works well.

    even paying for boosts on posts, is really giving under whelming results. Impressions are there obviously, but their targeting system just leaves too much up to them on their side to really feel like its giving you an ROI.
