Facebook says the decline in reach was a bug in Facebook’s data collection, posts still reached same amount of people as usual

You might have heard: Publishers saw a drop-off in shares and engagement on Facebook from mid-February into March (NewsWhip)

But did you know: After data reports for February and March were underwhelming, concerns rose that Facebook was prioritizing native video and other content over publishers’ posts. In February, the 100 most shared English-language stories had 10.2 million shares, as compared to 16.4 for the same group in January. Facebook said there was an issue with Page Insights logging in February that was resolved by early March and current reports should be correct. Despite what the data shows, Facebook says the actual delivery of posts was not affected, only the reporting.
