My apologies to the group, I have been MIA.  I haven't taken photos since these snow storms came in.  I only touched my camera to shoot events that I'm hired for.  Have a lot on plate and decided not to shoot for awhile for these groups.  

Hopefully I find my way back.  I truly enjoyed G+.  Thank you all for teaching and sharing.

Your Facebook page becomes irrelevant!

Ok, some of you may say the problem with Facebook is... well... Facebook!

It's a love-hate thing for many people as they have to be on it since everybody else is BUT they do not like Facebook's practices in many respects. But Facebook's latest move to restrict a page's reach to an even smaller fraction of its followers seems to be desperate at best.

What's the problem?

Let's say you have a page and you've managed to accumulate a large following by posting really awesome content. Assuming that you did not buy those likes, that was really hard work over months and years. Now Facebook tells you that in order to reach more than, let's say, 5-10% of those people, you have to pay! If you have promoted your page on Facebook to get more fans, you even pay twice - once for getting the fans and again for reaching them. 

I know, I know, they have to make money somehow. But the irony of doing it this way is that they're pissing off the people they want to generate their revenue from - the page owners. 

If you have a non-profit page that does not earn you any money, it's even worse. Paying for reach may not be an option at all. In that case, you have lost 95% of your fans, and continuing may not seem worthwhile.

But the absolute worst thing of all is that the normal Facebook user does not get the content they chose by liking pages. They get the stuff that's paid without even knowing it.

To me, this looks very much like a lose-lose situation. What do you think?

Here's a video by +Veritasium that it explains it well:
