    I've spent 9 months to build approx 10 Facebook pages, total approx 500k fans, all funny/interesting pict video....
    I invested a lot of money (ads, hiring someone to made pages/posts), time in coding(schedule tasks, posts, landing website...)

    After a lot of time to test and adjust with landing website's adsense policies... I started to net 22k usd per month...
    And then, facebook suddenly changed it's algo and killed all my funny page's reach. My posts cannot get viral because FB categorize
    they are memes.

    Now, all my pages are basically dead, my landing site drops from 4M monthly visit to 5k... lol

    As of today, I waiting if FB regret about the algo change and roll-back, otherwise I am moving to new project and will forget about this fb bullssst.

    And when that day comes, I will open up my likejacking website to all of you guys to use, and I will post the source code and the secret.

    fuk them! wasted my whole year in making contents for your platform!

    Wow, that really sucks man. Facebook screwed me over as well with ads. But I managed to get back at it.
    Good luck on whatever future plans you have. All the best my friend, hopefully you'll get everything back up again.
    BA,

    With respect, I disagree with other replied. Dude, you have 500K on all of you pages, and these are people with know, like, and trust established. Think like a businessman! Go for FB Ads! You can just pay $7 for a sponsored post that will get FB to send it out in the newsfeed of all of your fans AND their friends. Yes, for 10 pages you need to pay 7x10=$70, but this is going to be a game of ROI. Even if you do one post a day for all of your pages:
    $70x30 days = $2,100. If you are netting $22K per month like you said, that's over 1000% ROI, PLUS you don't have to keep on sending funny stuff only, you can include direct marketing posts and boost up your ROI, and FB will allow you to get laser targeted traffic if you know how to use the ads manager.

    But first, I suggest you go and take a course or two on FB ads. You have Don Wilson, Perry Marshall, and Amy Porterfield courses which are all good.

    Just as CL's policy of charging for hiring ads in certain areas vastly increases the quality of the posts, it also vastly increases the response rate you get - AND people clicking on those ads know you paid for them, so they take the contents more seriously.

    Should have built an email list, you think short term not long term. Besides why put all your eggs in one basket?

    Well, it's really sad but you should have seen it coming. Facebook is an open platform which we've no control over, so rather than trying to build a long-term self-sustaining program, one should race against time and maximize the profits while the bubble lasts.

    Like it's being proved right now, it can BURST anytime, without warning :)
