Facebook did something funky about 6 weeks ago about a week or two before they started offering promoted posts.
We all know they have quarterly filings and need to show a profit on however the issue is this.
I'm a heavy Facebook user and log in at least 5-6 times a day with a few hundred friends and probably about the same in likes however now i'm seeing less than 20 uploads every few hours whereas before there would be 100+ every few hours for me to read.
I'm sure if Aunt Jenny only logs in once a month then your algorithms are great however you should give US the END USERS the choice about whether we want Facebook to filter on our behalf OR if we want to see EVERYTHING.
At the moment there is no other game in town but you are really screwing the pooch on this issue and one day you'll look back the way MySpace looks back on blinking text and say yeh.....thats where we went wrong.
