Facebook Reach: How Facebook Is Killing Itself

Facebook is killing Facebook. We joined Facebook to share our events with our friends and families. And as our organic reach on Facebook drops to 2 – 10%, Facebook is trying to get us to pay $5 to show our post to our “friends.” What?

If there were somewhere else to go, I am pretty sure we would migrate. But why would people move. Google Plus is a pretty good alternative, but it’s not good enough. Or people don’t trust Google. Or there’s just not enough reason to move. Here are my results recently on a page that has over 500 fans.

I’m all for the migration, but I’m not sure I can convince anyone to come with me. Google Plus anyone?

Dear Facebook,

You are killing the reason we got on Facebook.

    1. Of course, and while I love G+ it has not gotten the traction necessary to take-over Facebook. I wish I could convince half of my friends to move over, but it’s more like three.

      1. Google+ will never take over Facebook and that’s really not the point. Both platforms serve different purposes.

        I’m glad my friends are not there. All I see is quality content. I don’t want to have to hide pictures of food, kids, and cats or minute details about someone’s life a daily basis. 😉

        1. Well that’s one way to look at it. I’d like to see something take the Facebook space and not kill us with ads and no allow us to see the Friends we ask to see.
