    Its been like 2-3 weeks that Facebook has been messing a round and making lots of changes. Since 5 days ago the reach has dropped really bad. Is it same for everyone? (only page owners)

    Yes we are affected as well significantly. The post reach is really bad due to the new fb algo to fight clickbait. Unforunately even posts that are whitehat or not spammy are also affected.

    Yeah it's been often referred to as "Facebook Zero" and in some quarters is part of FB's fight against clickbait and also to drive more and more people to drive traffic to their pages from FB Ads etc. What we're finding is that right after the time changeover (midnight PST or 8.00 am GMT etc) the level drops and then as activity on the page continues throughout the day such as more posts and likes etc then the Organic reach climbs.

    What you will have to do is calibrate/monitor your activity to see what you can do to mitigate the drop on Organic reach as this can be done. We left a couple of pages alone for 14 days once just to see what the "floor level" was once and then we're now building back up again.

    Bottom line is that you need to be constantly working a page and then when FB see more activity, more life and more genuine engagement the level of "Organic Reach Dropoff" will reduce..ultimately to zero and your reach will start to climb again.

    At the end of the day all FB want are seemingly genuine pages with genuine engagement and basically adding to the overall community.

    Provide that and you're good to go so not all doom and gloom

    We launched a page yesterday with a couple of posts, no paid promotion and we used a little technique we've been working on and here we are 24 hours later with 132 likes, Reach of 412, Post engagement of 186 and 159 people talking about the page so it can be done...that was just a test to see if what we thought would work...would in fact work, so now we'll kick it harder ;-)

    Fb also takes down some of my links immediately after they have been posted on few pages. ! the images aren't even sexy or anything ! facebook is messing about ! Honestly This is all blamed on those people from foreign countries (mostly asia) who post pornography link (even child) on fb. We are punished because of those idiots .

    Well it depends on how many pages you share. for example I posted something about fake shampoo factory and it was removed ??? another post was about Obama's daughter. It was exactly the same posts as another page. I have no idea whats going on. I don't think it's related to olympics :/

    Does this also affect group posting? If so, will a quick change in the pages titles to be less "click baity" be enough of a work-around?

    How about your avg daily page likes (not posts just page) ? Is it still the same or different ?

    Yes definitely seeing some updates in reach and limitations. Not sure about the deleted links though :)
