Facebook Changes Reach to People Who Saw This on Facebook Pages


If you have a Facebook Page, you are very well aware of the impact your shared content makes, it seems as though it is harder to be seen by all the people who have liked your page. This can be discouraging and leave the Facebook owner feeling like their efforts are going unseen.

A few months ago, Facebook added “reach” to the bottom of every post, showing a percentage of people that your Facebook content was reaching. To some this was confusing, to others, this was disheartening, since the amount was usually low.

Recently Facebook has switched “reach” to “people who saw this post”. A small change that could help page owners feel a little less unhappy about their page content being a percentage to having it as seen instead.


Does this help you? Or is it just Semantics?
