    I have been running a facebook page for 2 years. I have 70,000 (all) real fans. For the last month or so, I've been posting daily viral pictures and such and been reaching 38 million people weekly. Its been crazy. But now all of a sudden my posts this week have only been reaching 1000-2000 people. Is this normal? What happened?

    Facebook has been diminishing the pages' visibility in order to force business owners and people who want reach to buy their ads and promote their stories. They even say they will walk towards that direction even further. I think I read all about this in Mashable, but a quick search will probably do the trick.

    Go to Twitter, better interaction, reach and it's free.

    Facebook is a joke and I'm starting to believe a lot of my ads are receiving fraudulent/fake clicks or they are boosting the click number. I'm using sophisticated traffic tracking software on my website and I'm thinking Facebook is lying about how many clicks my ads are getting in order to squeeze more money out.

    I'm actually looking into this and I'm going to do a case study and create an ad to a custom audience to 12,000 fake facebook profiles that I will import into my ad account. If I see clicks I'm going to have to report on this here and possibility even have to take action.

    The only way to combat this is by using AMF to increase your post likes and shares and making fakes accounts and getting 5,000 friends + 20,000 followers and sharing your posts.
    Then just keep making more fake accounts until to get a good reach, this is the only way, the BH way.

    I have actually read a few articles where people have done studies on the traffic quality and the results they found were quite shocking with a lot of bot traffic.

    I gotta say, I'm experiencing the same thing. Target your ads to third-worlders and it gets the Like CPC down to 0.02c, within 5 minutes your page starts to get likes, yet they barely engage. I post a video, or an external link, barely any reach. I post a stupid picture, and the reach gets better, but still nothing great. I've got nearly 10k "followers". All from FB ads.

    Does anyone have good target settings for getting native-English Like CPC down to half a cent? I heard it's possible. Bringing third-worlders to your page is a total waste of money.. spent like 400$. I've seen pages with 2000 likes, yet some amazing engagement reaching up to 200 shares per post, all because their audience is made of native-English folks. :(

    Nothing new in this and now with new page interface it is going to almost end post visibility by giving just one tab for pics on fan pages.
