Stop forcing business page owners to pay in order to reach their fans


Facebook has always been a free social networking site and a way for business owners to expand their business. Since Facebook has become a publicly traded company we business page owners have noticed a LARGE drop in the percentage of fans that our posts, ads, and pictures are reaching. Facebook has added the "promote" option to our pages so we can choose to pay in order for more of our fans to be reached. This is unacceptable. As a free social networking cite we shouldn't have to pay to reach our fans.

"News"feed is now becoming advertising and no longer "news". If we want to pay to promote our pages through Facebook ads, thats fine. But we shouldn't have to pay to promote our newsfeed to our fans!
