    Hi,
    So ive noticed that when you go to write a post theres a tab that you can click to select a certain area of your audience ''target audience'', im not new to this and no this has been around awhile BUT what i have noticed is, if you click on the target audience button it SHOULD automatically say you are targeting everyone on your page because you havent selected any categories for targeting yet, this is the case on couple of my pages HOWEVER on the page (my main page) its almost HALF, i dont understand.. its not like ive said i only want to target males or females to bring the overall figure down, as standard without clicking any targeting options its almost half..

    Not too sure why this is or if its a glitch but my other pages are fine so i dont get it? All likes are real, i dont use like exchange networks, everything is organic and built up over time and hard work so why am i getting shafted like this?

    Anyone else having this problem?

    Not exactly too sure what the issue is you are having but status update on fan pages don't even reach all of your fans, they only reach 15% of your fans now. It's just a way for Facebook to earn more money as they charge in order for you to reach more than 15% of your OWN fans which is plain stupid.

    Yes its common when you hit the target button the reach reduces. Why?
    Because not all your fans have filled out their profile completely and so facebook does not know where to place them so it automatically cuts them out and hence the reach is reduced.

    Yes but the reach shouldnt be reduced if you wish to target all of your audience as it wouldnt need to place them in certain categories. ALL my other pages are exactly the amount of likes the page has to target.

    So say a page has 113490 likes, it should say target audience 113490, which is does apart from one page which is for example showing 113490 amount of likes and target audience 59860.

    Makes no sense at all considering i havent chosen any options for targeting.

    (those likes were just an example, not my actual likes)
