I’ve seen a drastic increase in people commenting on their reach on various Facebook pages over the past week, even my own have taken a hit on both pages. Its almost at times made me consider dropping them all together since it doesn’t seem worth it, at the same time having that outlet is nice and does draw in people that might just happen by as well as most of my personal network who are huge supporters of my work are on there. This way its rather nice to have an outlet if only to not have to keep cluttering up my own feed and be able to share more of what people probably watch my stuff for- news about my munchkin and life in general. So there’s no denying how useful it is and its used much more than like the closest counterpart G+- which I have but don’t use barely myself since as I said most of my network is on Facebook. Now I could do what they want and pay for reach but if I pay for things I rather put the money towards other stuff since even doing that feature doesn’t seem worth it. So I continue the debate. At the same time I find myself after seeing post upon post about this and seeing it myself I find myself debating to change despite all this instead investing myself in a platform that is useful due to its user base but at the same time just a giant frustration.
So what sparked this post? Well I’ve been marketing well even before Vengeance released and now am especially focused on it. Today I hop on twitter and see this video linked. It sums up pretty well the issues of Facebook for pages and even personal accounts and the importance of people engaging in posts since liking and indicating an interest is not enough to keep seeing the news.
