Your Facebook Page Likes Will Likely Drop Soon. Worried Yet?
Most of the business owners think that if they have got enough likes on their Fanpage, it is okay for them to sit back and relax for a while. But they should know better because of Facebook’s changing algorithms and schemes.
Facebook announced yesterday that Facebook Fanpage admins should expect a decrease in their Likes in the next few weeks. These likes will include memorialized and voluntarily deactivated user accounts which just make the page look like that it has got more fans than there actually are. At the end of this, the admins will get the fans which are currently active on Facebook and it will be easier for them to evaluate where they stand in the matter of popularity.
Facebook’s actual blog post stated:
“Over the coming weeks, Page admins should expect to see a small dip in their number of Page likes as a result of this update. It’s important to remember, though, that these removed likes represent people who were already inactive on Facebook.”
But Facebook also assures that this decrease in Likes will be small and will not cause an uproar like the Instagram incident did in December.
