If you have seen this happen to your facebook page, you are not alone! Over the past few months, many Facebook Page administrators have noticed their fan counts decreasing, massively and automatically.
We have sent report and reached out to Facebook but haven’t received a response on the issue, which means there is probably a bug which needs to be fixed. So far, unfortunately, there hasn’t been any clarifications from Facebook!
We watched our Facebook Page increasing in popularity few months back, however starting from late Dec 2010, the number of fans we have has decreased by over 200.
In our Facebook fan page, the fan list shows that it adds around 10-20 fans a day. But the total fan count shows 2 or 4. Or sometimes it shows lesser than it was. There is no sign of unsubscribed fans from Insights dashboard, the number’s count just stuck. But recently I also noticed that FB Insights also stop working, no new data updating at all.
So what on earth is going on? To be honest, we have no idea. Thought posting about the issue and to make it known as this issue appears to be happening to the vast majority of Facebook Pages.
If you are one of the victims, don’t worry, there are many other people have noticed and are facing the similar issues – your facebook page fan count that you see now does not reflect reality.
In you account, you might see the new fans are keep rising, the number of ‘New Like’ is goes up but the count number that shows from Insights are keep decreasing, someday it decreasing in few numbers, some days (especially in the weekend), it decreasing massively.
As far as we know, Facebook “Like” button is full of BUGS and we don’t even have a link to reported the problem, the worse thing is they don’t even answer!
We’ll definitely be sure to update this Post once we receive any information from Facebook, who has so far been quiet about the problem.
