    Yes this is what facebook is doing.
    You pay for the fans, and now you pay for reaching out to fans.

    They are killing the goose that laid the golden egg!

    Surely they'll have to change that 10% algorithm?

    That sucks. I was planning on building fb fan pages to drive traffic to my site. Seems like I have to stick on fb comment spamming.

    Now i have lower nd lower reach. Yesterday all last week was good, and starting from today its bullshit again. The pictures are getting so low likes and shares, and links.. like nothing. I don't know how much this will long, but this reach is killing us and our pages. I remember that time when i used to reach a 500k on a link, and now i cannot reach more than 5000 people on it. That sucks

    Since 5 days ago, I've seen the worst decline ever. Before that I had somewhat okay reach. Also, don't forget the algo changes were made few months ago, not a week ago. However, it's only now where it really starts to sink in and kill organic reach.

    Going down is a term I'd use with an elevator. This is more of a jumped out the window and smacked the pavement hard type of drop

    Yep the more they change the worse its going to get. the ads that you put up are crap. it will get you links to your page but that is about it. I have stopped buying ads all together.

    I posted a video, came back a day later to check on it: "1 person saw this" LOL. Are you kidding me? before that I was averaging 20-30 likes per post + shares and some comments.

    Yeah, it was worse a few days ago but since yesterday, there has been, what I would like to call, a drastic decline on all reach on my pages. I'm at a point where I'm about to move on and give up on Facebook. I've made more than $100K thanks to Facebook but I guess this is it.

    Also, the ads are USELESS. I've spent more than $20K on targeted ads and it does no good. You gain fans but they can't see anything you post. Facebook has seriously closed the door on the faces on Internet marketers. The only way to make money now is to run campaigns which are targeted via ads or own a big ass media site and get verified. Anything else, and you're wasting time.

    I'm very sad right now but I guess it's time to pack my bags. Sorry to hear about all of you as well :)
