    Hi,

    I have noticed that there has been a dramatic increase in "unlikes" consistently across all pages I own from around the 22nd Feb. I have access to view some other administrators pages and can see this is happening for them also. I've been hunting around for days for any mention of an algo update, but have not found anything thus far.

    The only other person I've seen one person on webmasterworld mention this, but I cant post a link to it. They didnt get any responses.

    Can anyone else concur that they're seeing this spike? Any ideas what is causing it?

    Great news, I had suspected this but couldn't find anything official from Facebook. Thanks for your reply.

    The assumption would be that this should increase your reach, would that be correct? We have never purchased any fake likes, and we're noticing engagement/reach has been tougher in the last couple of weeks. Could this be related?

    That seems to be the assumption, yes. I'm not experienced in Facebook marketing so I'm not sure why you're getting the opposite effect. Perhaps someone with more knowledge would care to reply with a possible cause

    I have been searching for this and you are the second person to say anything. There was the recent drop in like, due to Facebook getting rid of memorialized accounts, but the unlikes skyrocketed on Feb 22. Has anyone found any reason?

    I don't understand why you need any more reason that the fact that facebook get rid of fake accounts and fake likes.

    If you wanna get more in details (Im unsure why it would matter) it probably means that facebook put its hands on a big farm of fake accounts and closed them down simulteanously.
