    Hey everyone!

    I own a 318k Facebook sports page and it has 300k+ people talking about it, since it's very active. However, two days ago my reach decreased by 50% and I have no idea why. I would usually get 10-20k likes on a photo, now I barely get 5k. It reaches 20-30k people maximum now, while it was reaching up to 100k before, almost on every third post.

    Most of the fans are from the US (40%) and from the Philippines (45%). Could there be any reason why it happened or Facebook just penalized me for...no reason?

    Thanks!

    Well since the new update of facebook algorithm all facebook page owners are screwed with reach and posts.

    There are new issues with the algo over the past couple months. Not a fun time for FB marketers...

    I went down to 10% of my fans viewing max.

    Same here for me.It sucks to use facebook these days.
    When it introduced the talking about the problem started with that.
    But slowly we got used to it and compromised with that and started to use it as facebook wanted us to do.
    But now its like only facebook ad is the way to increase reach to display your page on someone timeline who already likes our page and interested to watch to.
    To Make sure they watch our post facebook wants us to pay and That Sucks.

    Yeah, but was there any change in the last 2-3 days? It was working fine until the last few days. I know it wasn't a perfect reach anyway, but it was good. Now, it's awful.

    The problem is that the FB model is flawed to begin with. People only spend a certain amount of time on FB in the first place. Then they like a ton of pages and there is only so much they can see in their feed at once. FB is trying to compensate for that and alter their algo to even out the playing field and make some money from sponsored results at the same time. The only real way to bank now is to pump money in.

    Fb will keep on reducing the reach, they want you to pay by using the boost option for every post... This is very fustrating...
    i have page with 200k US fans.. everything is fine except the LINK reach...

    You might have paid fb to gather fans , BUT it does not mean that now 100K or so people is your permanent source of traffic.. and you can bring them on your website etc... Just because someone likes your pages , it DOES NOT means they want to see all your offering or posts etc... WHICH IS THINK IS GOOD.

    Now as you paid for your fans, and i think most of those who did, have already made that money back... And now to get those people/traffic from your page to your website etc you need to pay to facebook...

    PS: sorry for my bad English.

    Well, don't expect things to get better anytime soon. Facebook is a on freefall and it's in the downward direction. They are screwing over marketers and no matter how many fans you have, the reach is bad to worse for everyone. Unless you pay them, 90% of your posts won't do good. Sad but true and it might only get worse from here on.

    Your case is a peculiar case, am not sure there is any update, change or something. Also, there is no harm in Facebook trying to tweak and improve ads revenue or whatever. If you are the owner you would probably do the same. The options are still many, accept it that way because changes is the only thing constant or boost your ads ONLY on relevant or monetized shit...

    This sucks for us. I have a facebook page and only reaches about 20% of fans recently.
    Sad. I hope facebook change back to their old algorithm to attract blackhatters back

    there was an update 2 days ago, you can see how some popup screens are different now, and some functions on pages are having a lot of problems such as insights, that problem of you still has some chance to be resolved just by waiting the one that went off on Dec 2 seems there's no way coming back from that one

    ok. So this is how you can increase your reach or maybe double it.

    Use text posts (with or without links). Don't include a thumbnail of the link in the text posts. This is to increase your reach. Not engagement. My reach quadrupled after I did this. Best of luck with this.
