If 881 people like my Facebook Page,

Resolved Question:

LKT :

Hello

Customer:

Hi

LKT :

If I understand your question correctly, some of your posts have more likes than views?

Customer:

I have a Facebook Page for a nonprofit organization, and it says that 881 have liked it. I can see their individual icons/profiles.

Customer:

ARe you familiar with a Facebook Page for an organization?

Customer:

Under each post, it will say something 71 people saw your post. On the right, there's a button to "boost this post"...it used to cost only $5 but now is up to $30. What the heck is up with that...I know that last year, it didn't cost that much and it was much better when it was free two-three years ago.

LKT :

Yes, I know this problem as well. The reason behind it is that people can actually "like" without viewing or clicking on the post which would count the view

LKT :

Its the same thing as liking a picture without opening the picture. These two number will be inconsistent. The likes can be higher than views.

LKT :

Or for instance, there might be a "like" button widget on a website that someone clicks without going to the actual page.

Customer:

I'm not talking about liking posts. I'm talking about how many people like my org's Page.

LKT :

Its the same concept. Do you have any like buttons anywhere besides facebook?

HiCustomer

I would like to explain your question better.

Previously facebook used to show your post to 100% of your page fans.

Recently with their urge to get funds from advertising. They changed their strategy and they are now showing to an average of 10% only of your page fans for each post.

There is a solution to this if you are interested.

I hope my answer was able to clarify and address your question.

Is it to simply pay $30 per post? That's just not right for a nonprofit org.

Expert:  ehabtutor replied 1 year ago.
no.

paying for posts is actually advertising. and its not specifically 30$ you can allocate the budget that you want. The 30$ is a suggested budget by facebook to boost the post.

Facebook adopts a pay per click strategy where you can specify a certain budget and specify what you wish to pay for each click.
and your post will appear to certain people based on the advertisment settings that you control. among this setting are geographically and gender as well as age.

The solution i am talking about is how to maximize the number of users that sees your posts, to be near the number of page likers.

As i told you above the rule is that only 10% of your page fans on average sees the post you publish.

but you can actually increase this number by urging your page fans to do the following:

you should post a similar image on your page urging your page fans to check the get notifications option after they like the page. This will make each post you publish appear for them.

Check the image here.

So to wrap up. this method will make you use the maximum of the page fans. Paid ads will let you reach new page likers as well as show your post to new people not neccessarily your page fans.

I hope i was able to clarify the issue.
Let me know if you have any more question.
If you are satisfied with my answer, please take a minute to leave me a positive rating. A bonus will be highly appreciated.
