Myth: It’s All About the Likes on Facebook

Feb 20, 2020 | General

You’ve probably seen them. Maybe you’ve even participated in them: Like Groups on Facebook. These are groups based on people’s incorrect believe that your page reach is all about the Likes on Facebook.

The idea is this will increase the numbers of Likes on Facebook that a page has, thus making it more popular with the algorithms and increasing its reach.

In fact, unless the people who are liking your page are exactly the types of people you are using the page to attract, this is a terrible idea and will actually hurt your page.
