    I have a small facebook page, likes were staying steady at around 7050, About 85% of those are all real or from facebook ads.

    So recently my ads account got locked for some reason. I think it was cus I was using paid ads to promote leapviral.

    Anyway... been active the last 2 days posting. This weeks reach is around 5000 , facebook says I received 23 likes in the last day or 2.

    Likes currently stand at 7021. So there is a sudden increase in my reach... and at the same time a sudden drop in my likes!

    What gives? Any ideas? Does anyone manage to grow likes on a consistent basis witouth using ads? I get the impression that nobody bothers to like pages so much. I had a video get some nice reach the other week (25000+) and only resulted in a few page likes.

    :(

    Where did you get the likes from? How do you know they are legit or not?

    This also happens to me sometimes that when reach increase likes drop but drop is always very low and it doesnt really make any impact on page.

    I got around 6000 likes through general posting, building fans, sharing of content and also facebook ads. Then I got about 1000 from a few fivver shout outs... I imagine there are a good few fakes in that. But majority of the 7000 are pretty much legit.

    But the thing is they stayed steady for good time... they just seem to be dropping in that last few days while my reach has gone up.

    I'm going to take a record of my insights now a few days later to see exacly where the droppers are based. That might point them to the likes obtained through a few fivver jobs

    They have actually dropped by around 50 likes in the last 2 days! Doesn't make too much sense... that means since I see i'v gained 23 new likes i'v actually lost 70 in 2 days during a higher reach period.

    I'm starting to wonder since fb decided to close my ads account for some fraudalent activity they are counting all the likes to take back as well lol.

    All I wanted to do was make a few tests, a few different types of posts to measure the likes increase. But now it's becoming impossible because they keep dropping for unknown reasons.

    One thing I know for sure is I will never ay $5 for a shoutout on fivver again. It might not be the root of the problem but prefer to be clear on it

    If you have a website with some traffic just use a quality likejacker.

    Maybe the likes that came to your page were from robots/hacked pages.

    Now FB could be banning those accounts or removing fraud likes.

    Yes, I was thinking that... like a mass ban on some ip's.......hopefully it will settle down after a while.

    Now I am getting paranoid...... so much interaction on the page and they keep dropping. I am still wondering if it has something to do with fb locking my ads account.

    Well we're glad your problem got solved. It was Fake likes after all then. The ones that you gained from Fiver.

    I was starting to think that myself .... if that was the case they should be picking on the big fish, not some small goldfishes

    ye... 1 dodgy fivver job. Waste of $5, I think I recall ordering a few shoutouts rathar than likes,, because I don't trust the majority of services that gives likes for cheap.
