    Since I've had a Facebook page I've always wanted a post to go viral.

    About 8 days ago I decided to make a humour page from fresh and the first post went viral within an hour of posting it.

    I quickly added some more content on the page and have been updating it since, but here's the bit I find weird..

    [​IMG]

    All those people reached, 25K likes, 14K comments & 23K shares and I only got 1000 likes to my new page. Is that a bit odd or is that normal from a viral post? I've always imagined that you'd get thousands.

    it's normal you don't get many fans from sharing images, page name has a lot to do with amount of fans you get

    Thanks for clearing that up for me! Do you know if there's any possible way to change the name? Just looked on Facebook and it says you can't if you have over 200 page likes.

    You may not get likes on your page necessarily if your post goes viral. However, try to edit your viral post description and include your page link in it. This may help you gain likes from people who have not already likes your page.

    somtime you can either by merging or changing the category of the page but the chances are very rare.
