Ah, the good old days; we often long for their simplicity, and yet time and so-called “progress” march on. In Facebook’s glory days, we didn’t worry about fake news, algorithms, or ads. Instead, it was all about making friends, catching up, and sharing.
Then businesses wanted to use Facebook to connect with consumers, so they joined the platform and started posting organic content. Facebook saw a revenue opportunity, so they offered companies the ability to post ads and target the consumers most receptive to their services. Suddenly businesses could reach people even more efficiently and cost-effectively.
Most recently, in early 2018, Facebook announced an overhaul of its news feed that favors content from friends over posts by companies, as well as a plan to feature more local news. For companies, this resulted in their organic reach plummeting, meaning that non-paid content was no longer showing up in their followers’ feeds.
