    I am wondering if it is because of the Holiday season? More people are competing for ad space and in turn drive up the price for the promoted post. Keep an eye on it and see if it decreased mid January. If not, then they are probably trying to eliminate the small accounts and focus on the bigger spenders.

    Charging in the first place was bad enough, especially when people have paid to build up an audience. I fully appreciate they have to monitize the site but the pricing is shocking.

    What! I was looking at using promoted posts in the future. I really hope it is just a holiday thing, because that really sucks. Facebook is on its tumble downhill smh.

    Compare the price relative to the number of impressions they are offering.

    I did a promoted post for $100 and received 48,000 paid impressions.
    Now $100 nets me less than 21k impressions (and that's on the top of the curve!)

    Facebook. Ridiculous.
