    Hi

    I've been reading lately from some page admins that Facebook changed its rules now, and any status you post on your page will only be seen by 12% of you fans... and if you need more people to see it, you will have to pay $5 or $10

    Is this true? Where on facebook does it say that only 12% of your audience will see your status?

    thanx

    What are you talking about?
    You do it wrong then.

    Ok, I won't play a the d!ck. Here's how I do it:

    - Send messages to groups with +50k likes. Send A LOT of messages. Even involve nephews, your little brother, hire a VA or whatever.
    - Hope that it's a kid who's the owner of the group
    - Offer him a PS3, or some money

    - Profit very good, day in day out.

    did facebook explicitly put a new rule stating that only 12% of your fans will see your updates???

    thanx

    It's not an explicit rule but that's what's happening on mine. Under each post it says "97 people reached
    ยท
    10%" or whatever then next to it, a "promote" option which says:

    Get more people who like your Page to see this post.
    $5.00
    Set your budget. The estimated reach at this amount is 900

    Well...It is a good feature if you want to reach all your fans. Let's say you post on your page daily,sometimes the reach is only 5% and sometimes it's 10%. By using the promote option you have the choice of selecting the % of fans you want to reach. Can be effective if used well.

    And all those who say fb marketing has died :p LOL. Lack of opportunity for you doesn't mean it's all over.
