It’s true, and not just for us. Organic sharing and likes of our posts have gone WAY down on FB, along with all these other pages who are complaining about it. I don’t complain about it as loudly as other pages do, because I stopped making FB our main channel a LONG time ago. This was more due to excessive censorship and post banning than anything else. Since then, it’s just gotten worse. Things have transcended to the ugly truth that viral sharing of any posts we make always seem to hit a ceiling. It’s because FB wants us to pay to get posts promoted, and that’s the main problem.
Should we even talk about what has happened to my own main news feed on FB? It’s become boring, and NOTHING I like or want to see ever shows up anymore. It’s just a sign of the times. FB is desperately filtering and controlling what we can see on our own News Feeds. The sad reality is that I find our site getting more traffic from Stumbleupon and G+ most days than FB. Which tells me that the writing is on the wall.
So, starting very soon, we’re going to make our presence on Youtube even more prevalent than FB, and hopefully with good, entertaining stuff. So keep sticking with us, as we “evolve”… 🙂
In the meantime, watch this great video from 2Veritasium about the current FB situation. He nails it.
