New update to Facebook coming, you wont see posts from pages you like anymore.

“We’re making a major change to how we build Facebook. I’m changing the goal I give our product teams from focusing on helping you find relevant content to helping you have more meaningful social interactions”. This has been posted this morning by Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook. You may read the full post here.

This means Facebook will show more stories and notifications from your friends than from the pages you follow, which is sad for me as a page owner and sad for a lot of users that check Facebook daily for funny and interesting videos, and tag their friends and loved ones on them.

Facebook organic reach has been declining since the beginning of this year to reach less than 6% by the end of 2017. I run a page of 40,000 fans which posts are seen by no more than 500 people. Expect this to go even lower in 2018.

It’s such a pity Facebook still charges an average of $0.5 for page like, and at the end doesn’t even let your posts reach your fans.

How to get around this? You can go to your favorite page, and then change “Following” option to “See first”, this will make sure the page posts will be visible to you. This option is only available to the desktop version of the page, you wont be able to do that on your phone which is the majority of Facebook users.
