What Is Going On With Facebook?

Last Update: June 03, 2018

Has anyone noticed there are less advertisements hitting your FB page? My son pointed this out to me and he is right. He also showed me the impact on the company he contracts to do video editing. Their videos would consistently receive thousands of views and now it may be as little as 1 or 2 and nothing over 100,000 which they consistently hit before.

I wanted to throw this out to the WA community. Any thoughts on how this impacts our marketing business and adjustments needed to keep getting activity?

Right, wrong, or indifferent, FB is increasingly becoming a pay-to-play site as far as marketing is concerned. An exception might be lives which still seem to get a fair amount of play.

I agree with that, but what he is saying is that there are less paid ads. I read something about that but at the moment dismissed it as, less ads from FB, really? So, not believing it I didn't make note of why or where I saw it.

FB has been running posts in everyone's newsfeed about it. They spin it as returning to their roots. I'm involved in several groups where the members rely heavily on FB ads and haven't heard anyone talking about decreased results. I'll ask today and post what I find out.

I would surely appreciate that. I don't use social media. At least not yet. I presume that much like smart phones I will get dragged kicking and screaming into social media and then find out that, "Oh, this wasn't so bad after all!"

I couldn't agree with you more, Bryan, except that I still have a dumb phone! Have a great week. I will be offline most of the week because I have out of town company. My cousin is hiking the Appalachian Trail, and his mother and her sister are visiting with me while he is gone. We will pick him up at Roan Mountain, NC about 135 miles from where he started, next Sunday. Carol

I got one cheap from QVC, but really didn't like it and didn't learn to use it. Sent it to my son, and he doesn't use it because he has a better phone. So if I ever do get brave enough to try it again, I know where it is!

When I first got it, a friend was showing me how to text. I didn't give out the number to anyone except her and her husband because I wasn't sure I would be using it.

A couple weeks later, I decided to try texting her to see if I still remembered how to do it. She didn't recognize the number and thought I was a stalker!

I remember reading that we would be seeing less ads, but didn't believe it at the time.
