Low Facebook page views (or why have I done all this work for nothing?)

So Facebook seem to have a random algorithm for posting to peoples’ news feeds. I did a test over the last couple of days.  I posted 3 different types of posts to my Facebook page (not timeline, a company page and it only has 450 likes) to see what the number views would be – Facebook page owners get to see how many folks viewed a post.  I was quite shocked actually.  Here are the results to find out why you might have low page views.

I know it’s only a couple of days, but this really shows a massive difference between posting random chat, rather than posting informative and useful links?

Come on Facebook! We might be your product, but we can walk away!
