    Did you guys read the announcement about their new system which is going to recognize clickbait titles and systems to make people click/like before seeing the content?

    About time, it needed to be done, nothing wrong with clickbait if done correctly but too many clowns abusing it.

    The more FB tightens up, the better it is for those that market on FB as opposed to spam.

    I may just send FB a cold beer for some of their actions chasing away low level spammers so those that put some effort into their marketing can benefit.

    Heck, maybe 2 cold beers.

    Yes :) http://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/welcome-to-the-fb-bounce-rate-algorithm-tweak.865174/

    Agreed. There is a clever way of gaming the system and the lazy-that is what everyone else is doing-it looks easy-I'll give that a shot too, way of doing it.

    With this update then it will clear out a lot of the low level spammers who are a pain in the arse who put in very little effort while expecting exceptional results in return.

    It's in FB's best (financial) interest to make it harder for your content to reach people so that you will move to the 'paid ads' option just like people had to with Google, SEO and AdWords. And FB get to spin this with the PR front of 'hey, we're cleaning things up to create a better user experience for FB users' which also just happens to be true.

    When Google started hitting the ranking websites,everyone was like...OMG, SEO is dead! And people still make money with SEO.

    Same situation here...who the f--k cares about the new algo changes? My page is just a small part of the traffic. First I grow the page reach then I post links. It works like a charm!
    If you want to play hard, put 100 accounts on a bot then start sending friend requests to people interested in your niche. Then is easy. Build a group with them,or anything you want. Good day
