Love it or hate it, Facebook reigns supreme over the social media landscape.
Pew Internet reported that nearly eight-in-ten online Americans (79%) now use Facebook.
The key to getting your message out on Facebook is having a fully engaged audience of fans that are willing to like, comment, share, and click on your posts.
As we all know (and frequently lament), organic (unpaid) reach on Facebook is way down. A study from Edgerank Checker found that between February 2012 and March 2014, organic reach for the average Facebook page dropped from 16% to 6.5%. Research from Social@Ogilvy suggests that for pages with more than 500K Likes (fans), organic reach can be as low as 2%.
But a vital indicator to the health and vibrancy of a Facebook page is whether or not you have the RIGHT kind of fans.
