    Well......... I've gotten around a 700 likes or so in the last 2 days thanks to it BUT for some reason my "talking about this" has gone up as well and is now on 600 something. What the hell?? Doesn't it look too fake?? :eek:

    What is causing the "talking about this to go up" like that? Is there any way to lower it or prevent it from going up for a while or something?

    I didn't have this problem the first day, the "talking about this" would stay the same while my likes would increase but now out of the blue it has sky rocketed.

    It just "thinks" they are talking about this, cause it appeared on their walls when they liked it. It will drop again in a few days...

    I agree, I would not be disappointed with this, and sometimes it makes a page look more real and active.

    What I think he is worried about is that the "talking about this" is too large for a fanpage his size. Fanpages with 10k+ users with 600 "talking about this" would be okay, but not with only 600 users/likes.

    I do a lot of facebook work, and I have yet to see a page get deleted because it had too many people talking about it. I don't think it is a problem, and actually a good thing as it will help it gain momentum.

    If he is worried he can buy fake likes to offset the ratio.

    Thanks for the replies guys.

    Well I am concerned mainly because it is a musician page, one for a musician who just broke into the scene. And for it to have 700 something likes with 600 "Talking About This" looks shady. Specially when the ratio is way different with big artists.

    My concern is not getting deleted, it's having people feel like something weird is going on. I want the page to look professional but credible.

    I am hoping I go up to at least 1,500 likes in 2 days or so and it staying at 600. Then I would stop using YouLikeHits and reach out fans to share and whatnot.

    The "talking about this" metric isn't youlikehits' fault, so it's kind of offensive to the person behind youlikehits. He posts here. The talking about this is a metric that Facebook rolled out as part of their Insights. The metric is a combination of people liking your page, sharing your content, people liking your wall posts, people visiting your fb page, etc. Of course that metric is going to go up because you are getting a lot of fans and they are all visiting your page in a short time. Your "talking about this" metric is going to go high no matter what you use to get fans. If you don't want that number high, then don't use anything to get fans. Although for the life of me, I have no idea why someone would say it is getting ridiculous. High fb metrics are a good thing.

    Your two hands are making it happen. Refrain from using any service and the metric will be low.

    This should set your mind at ease. http://blog.hubspot.com/blog/tabid/...ic-and-Enhanced-Ad-Feature.aspx#ixzz1ZxBvuMDV

    "Facebook's new metrics and advanced advertising functionality means a number of important things for marketers. While the new metrics available to Facebook page administrators is helpful for marketers to measure and understand how effective their content is at engaging fans, the 'People Talking About This' metric is particularly noteworthy. Because it will be visible as a publicly facing metric, marketers must understand how this will affect their ability to attract new fans. New visitors to your page may start using the metric to gauge whether they want to become a fan, so the higher your score, the better. Because a more engaging page with more likes, comments, and interaction will mean a better 'People Talking About This' score, marketers must focus on creating a page that generates more engagement and interaction."

    Well Z083 I'm using iMacro to get my likes. It does it automatically, I have like 10,000 something points now. Maybe that has something to do with it but I doubt it.

    Thanks memy. At the moment my "Talking About This" is higher than the number of likes and it makes you scratch your head and I don't want people looking at the page scratching theirs either. Hopefully it goes down to a "normal/standard" amount (ratio wise).

    Same here. And now it's not bothering me so much. Specially when you start getting normal traffic and you start putting content on your page.

    Yes, I have that problem too sometimes. What happens is this:

    - There's a page You Like Hits can't confirm and it stays stuck in that page.

    Keep skipping pages until you get to the ones it can confirm.

    If it doesn't work, try removing your page account, logging out, logging back in and putting the page url again.
