Yep we’re screwed. Sorry for profanities but this is the bottom line here esp reading that article.
That article by the way was the best one I have read by FAR, most honest and respectable reflection on the current situation thank you so much for sharing, thank goodness for people like you. Still, the news in this article is very disheartening.
If I knew this was the way of the future for FB I wouldn’t have spent literally hundreds and thousands of hours developing both my, and other arts organisations/businesses pages, I would have just made them a website.
FB has no future at this point for business pages, I can’t wait for a competitor to come into the market i will even go and work for them to develop their software so we can blow FB out of this market. I HATE them right now, and challenge anyone on this. You can’t just change the rules of the game to suit and totally screw over all of your customer base, over, and over.
I’ve spent, probably like everyone here, at least 2-3 hours a day every day for the last 2 years on this, working, building, changing, adapting to FB’s new rules as they have changed and now this. That is at over 100 hours a week – over 10,000 hours I have spent on the software, way more than any any other only for FB to make these changes and basically screw us over to get more money for themselves (like they need it).
If I were being paid $20 an hour that’s $200,000 dollars worth of work right there.
x the billions of people out there like us that have done this kind of work, spent this time, invested in this for the benefit of others, brands, businesses, projects etc.
Thank you for great article again though.
And btw, I have over 7500 followers on my page (one of them alone).
Then there are the others.
