Let ALL fans see posts from Pages without Page owner having to pay

Music bands and other small businesses have spent huge numbers of hours and a great deal of effort building up their fan base on Facebook. Now Facebook is undermining all this huge effort by only allowing posts by these small businesses to go to a fraction of the fan base and charging more and more money to allow them to go to progressive percentages of those fans. And when they do pay, the posts show up for only 3 days and then they go away, and the post may not even then show on more than a fraction as many as the Promote button says it will.

This is due to the Edge Rank algorithm, which only shows posts by a person or Page to people who are more active with them. This effectively blocks people who Like your Page from seeing your posts (even though they are obviously wanting to see them, as shown by them Liking your Page), unless they have been interacting with your posts. (Which begs the question, how do the fans who don't see your posts--because they didn't happen to interact with some of them earlier--start seeing your posts again by interacting with them, since they aren't seeing them to know to interact with them?)

This really needs to change, and the Promote button is NOT adequate or appreciated or Liked, nor does it even work as it claims to.

Please sign to let FB know we are REALLY  bothered about this situation and need it to change.
