Facebook's Bait And Switch: Better To Be PIRATE than NAVY

Facebook's Bait And Switch: Better To Be PIRATE than NAVY | Curation Revolution |
Facebook pulled the best practical joke of the internet age: the company convinced countless celebrities, bands, and "brands" that its service was the best way to reach people with eyeballs and money. Maybe it is! But now that companies have taken the bait, Facebook is holding the whole operation hostage.
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

My disdain for Facebook continues as they tighten "edgerank" otherwise known as how they stop you from showing your content to your followers down to 1% or 2%.

If that sounds like the most successful bait and switch Ponzi scheme ever created you are thinking what I am thinking...that and NEVER AGAIN do I even contemplate putting branded content on that PIRATE network. 

How does the saying go? Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on ME. Never again.

"Bait & switch" is the essence of most "free" services

This has been happening regularly on the Fb site I manage. More likes, yet less visibility for posts, thought it was just me. Happening to you? Read this article.
