Facebook Making Pages More Useless

Given recent history of Facebook not showing posts from pages that you’ve liked and actually want to see posts from, the fact that they are coming out now and telling page owners that they are going to be displayed to even fewer fans in the future has me thinking about just dropping my Facebook pages altogether.

Given their response that the best way to reach the same people who have asked Facebook to show you their updates, is to purchase advertising, I’m tempted to not bother with trying to keep up Facebook pages for my blogs any more. Originally, I set up pages there as an easy way for people who used Facebook to follow the blog there, but obviously Facebook has decided that you shouldn’t be allowed to do that as a blog reader unless he blog owner pays for advertising. So, if you really want to follow this blog, check the sidebar for the RSS feed or email subscription. Don’t use FB to follow your online news sources.
