According to blog.scoop.it social media publishing is dead. Things are changing, and fast. Facebook dropped a bombshell by not only acknowledging that Facebook pages’ organic reach was declining but also by telling us we shouldn’t expect them to recover.
Facebook’s VP of Product for Facebook Ads, Brian Boland, went on to explain that this is the new world we live in now, that the same thing happened with search engines before and that we’d better get used to it.

And now that all social media are publicly-traded company with ambitious revenue targets to reach, it will happen to social media as well.
