Facebook Orgainc Changes - How it will affect pages

Is organic Reach going away completely for Facebook Pages??

Organic reach continues to decline and Facebook just announced that it’s going to go down even further. But there are strategies that businesses can use on Facebook to reach their customers.

Facebook Reach Changes

You may have noticed Facebook Reach declining?  

Mark Zuckerberg announced that he wants to focus on connecting people more (and Pages less).  Here’s a quote from his update:

But recently we’ve gotten feedback from our community that public content — posts from businesses, brands and media — is crowding out the personal moments that lead us to connect more with each other. – Mark Zuckerberg

And here is the quote from the Facebook Newsroom article about how they are responding:

As we make these updates, Pages may see their reach, video watch time and referral traffic decrease. The impact will vary from Page to Page, driven by factors including the type of content they produce and how people interact with it. Pages making posts that people generally don’t react to or comment on could see the biggest decreases in distribution. Pages whose posts prompt conversations between friends will see less of an effect.

They go on to say that reach won’t disappear completely and people can still use the “See First” feature for Pages that are important to them.

To use this feature, you go to the Page, click Following and then select See First.  You can let your following know about this and you may get some people who use this feature but more than likely the majority of your Fans won’t.

So what should marketers do?  Abandon their Pages completely? Not completely but the recommendation is not worrying as much about content on your Page.

What marketers should do about the decreased Facebook reach

I think we are seeing the beginning of the end for Facebook Pages being a vehicle for businesses to reach their customers organically.  In the future Facebook is going to be only an ads platform.

1. Continue to count on Facebook Live video and focus more energy on video for organic reach
2. Facebook Ads are still critical and still effective for reaching your targeted audience
3. Think about using a Facebook Group for your business

Facebook Groups aren’t necessarily a good fit for every business because they take more time and more moderation. 

Make sure you are using strategies and tactics to grow your email list from Facebook so if this platform doesn’t work for you anymore, you have ways to connect with your community.
