    Not just mines but some of the biggest pages i'm subscribed to are only showing 1-2 shares max on posts going back to their website for the last 24 hours vs 500-1k shares a day or so ago. I know Facebook cosmetic changes are rolling out, but is this some how related? If this isn't some kind of glitch, this is going to be a huge problem...

    yep... looked at some pages with over a million fans and shares are down to 1-2. my page only has 20,000 likes but is experiencing the same thing on links. photo shares are normal though. this... sucks

    Facebook has decreased the reach to links to domains considered to be spam....ex. MyLikes. If your domain has been marked as spam, you will need to do something like iFrame or a clever redirect solution for your content to get around it.

    Well, my domain has 2 days so I think it's not considered spammy and can't reach too. Some of my photos with links in description have 0,005% reach.. That is just miserable.

    There have been a few posts related to this..I think Facebook has decreased the reach overall for posts with and without links. Although, I myself and some others on this board have noticed posts with links get extremely low reach now. They have started wanting people to pay for reach. Go visit as many fan pages as you want..I'm willing to bet you'll see the 'talking about this' go down on every single one of them.

    I even read one article where Facebook said 'reach could be zero in the foreseeable future'...They're gonna want you to pay for anyone to see your posts before too long :\

    I worked my ass of posting everyday on my FB page and got 200K fans after 4 years. I shared a link (with thumbnail) today in primetime. I got a reach of 200 and 7 clicks. This is getting f*cking ridiculous.

    I've just read that FB is cutting down organic reach to 1-2% ... I've got 126k page myself and I reach 200-600 people with the posts. External links and other pages? 20-30 at the cap...
