    A lot of pages I handle and for a lot of brands on Facebook, the reach and the number of fans engaged has decreased over the past week.Facebook rolled out a new algorithm update. This means the following.

    1)High Quality Content (Articles from Brands) will get more prominence.

    2)Memes will be pushed away.

    3)Links will work more. FB now shows suggested articles from same page/site when you click on one their article.

    4)Paid + Organic reach is the way to go. Only organic reach will not take you anywhere.

    This is what comes to my mind. I read the article on my phone, so will post the source later but it was all over edgerank,allfacebook etc. Feel free to post a link if you can.

    The question is Are FB updates equally relevant as Google updates?

    This is the only truth:
    The rest is fake. And think of all the people who paid to fb to get likes, and now fans receive nothing from them(almost).

    Yeah, true. I saw the update but saw a decrease in the reach yesterday itself. So thought of putting it up here.

    No it isnt.FB wants you to pay for ads, whether promoted posts or FB likes. They want you to spend money. I recently had a guy from Facebook Global Sales Team talk about how Facebook is good for business and the only thing he did was to tell us how ads are better for you. He just wanted to sell Facebook ads to us and talked little about how to manage it.

    Everything Facebook says is fake. Unless you have hundreds of dollars to spend, it doesn't matter what content you post. Even quality content won't get you anywhere. Facebook's new update is a punch to the face for all online marketers who have spends thousands of dollars building fan pages as now they don't mean anything as far as referral traffic is concerned.
