Business owners who have Facebook pages have been complaining to the company that Facebook users who have "liked' their pages are no longer seeing updates to the page.
In advertiser-speak, this 'organic reach' is declining-- as few as 3% of the people that "like" a page will actually see its status updates.
Facebook argues that without filtering, a typical user would get 1500 status updates a day. No one wants that many status updates. So FB argtues it has to filter stuff for the user's benefit.
I have a different idea, though. What if insead Facebook made it easy for people to unlike or do their own filtering? If a page is sending you too many updates, mute it or unlike.
It won't take long for people to figure out that those who "like" everything end up with cluttered feeds, and they will make the decisions about what they like enough to actually have pushed to their news feed.
People making their own choices and having consequences from that-- what a concept.
