    I've done the math and I can conclude that most of my post are only exposed to roughly ~1% of my fans.
    I know that FB need filtering on the newsfeed and so. By doing so, aren't the channeling of message and content being less significant unless I pay to promote my post.
    Just my share of thought.

    They want you to pay to promote your post, that's the entire point sadly.

    Yep, they want you to pay for ads to reach your own fans. I guess they think of them as Facebook fans not your fans....

    Facebook is a business. Their whole idea was built on making money. Zuck wanted it to be free for the user. He said it would ALWAYS be free for the user. Obviously the only way to make money from his idea and grow the business further is to charge people for advertising. Which is what most websites do. BuzzFeed is free for you to browse, but to advertise is going to cost you money. It's all Capitalism. Get on the train or try to keep up by running behind. The choice is yours.

    Iv found it goes with your likes compared to "people talking about this".If every post you do has a link they hammer you.Try posting some stuff without links for a while and watch your reach grow then start posting the odd link.Its about the balance

    It is about balance for sure. In months past, I got greedy and posted links to often and was penalized for it. The other thing to remember is that you must know your audience very well...meaning that it isn't going to just be good enough(for example) to just post random jokes on a humor page. Facebook will reward you for targeted content to a targeted niche audience/page. If not, you will pay for it one way or another. You are rewarded for engaging content..period and end of story. Micro targeted/niche pages are the best way to monetize an audience on fb now... if you know what you are doing. Trust me, I have spent tons of money figuring this out..lol

    My reach has dropped down significantly also.
    I run a page that has about 70,000 fans. Its just a fun facebook page geared towards funny pictures. My pictures would recieve thousands of likes and shares. One of my posts reached 43 million last month.
    Now my posts are lucky to be seen by 5000 people. I never posted spam or links. Just funny pictures that my "fans" loved and shared.

    If you want to get traffic from Facebook quickly, yes you need to go FB ads.

    If your budget is tight, you must be persistent and patient in generating traffic from FB.

    The most annoying thing is, those who already had big fan pages before this change, do not suffer from it. They still get hundreds (if not thousands) of likes, comments and shares.
