    One of the pages I manage is for a male voice choir called Cantorion Colin Jones and in the past 3 days the weekly total reach has nose dived by about 70% and the % change has remained at 0.
    It looks like Facebook has got a very large gremlin in the works.

      Hi @dewijones:disqus, Facebook insights have been buggy for the last 10 days, most pages have no statisctics since May 19… Wait until they come back to normal to check your reach again.

    I have noticed that the photos I post seem to have a much smaller reach than the text posts. That seems backwards to me. Is this something that others have noticed?

      Hi @cherylfischer:disqus, photos do reach a lot less people that text only updates, that has been reported many times and is now a proven fact. However, photos get more engagement. Tough choice!

      I have the opposite problem – my text updates have lower reach than pictures, and links are the smallest of the three.

    It was on 13 of May that all my managed pages flatlined and in the past 4 days the weekly reach has crashed, with the page that I mentioned being the 1 to suffer the worst.
    Have people with promoted posts and suffered because of the bug and I wonder if they’ll get money back if they have?

    You’re welcome @PetieKelly:disqus! The picture is not mine, this is Jeff’s choice ;-)

    I manage 6 pages and have seen an increase in reach on each of them, despite not doing anything really differently. Same mix of links, photos, videos and text updates, and in my monthly reports I attributed that increase to those “fixes.”

    I manage a page that has 100 likes, a wee ago when I reviewed the insights it showed weekly total reach down -65% but this week it is showing it is up more than 1000 % (one thousand). Some other data also shows i have over 5000 paid reach but i havent spent any money or put any advertisements on facebook…This data seems so off and cant be correct… Or is it? Any input?

    What annoys me about the hole Facebook reach is that I have spent a lot of money building up targeted audience of followers that want to receive my posts, and now they do not all get to view my posts although they want them, yet Facebook will allow the messages to spread viral to people who have no interest in my page – mega frustrating !!!!

    Rant over – apologies for hijacking :)

  • David Iain Crombie

    i have a page with 500+ fans/likes and viral reach has vanished!

      Yes, Facebook is now pay to play! Maybe time to focus on Twitter?

    Actually, I was seeing wonderful grown all year until Sept. 30. From that day until now all stats have dropped dramatically for my own page as well as the pages of my colleagues. I’ve yet to see anyone posting about this.

  • Macedo Hugo

    My page has 24k likes… I made posts with 9 reach… It’s stupid!!

    We’re seeing decreases in organic reach, as well. Kind of makes buying Likes through FB less important. It’s all about engagement now. You’ve got to be posting super high quality posts that you’re followers want to share, on your behalf. Otherwise, no one will see your posts.
