Why FB Page Low People Reach

I have FB Page with around 6K members. However, when we are posting something, why the people reached is just around 100 - 200 people and never been above it.

Why this is happening? Is there anything we can do to improve the people reached at least close to the members of FB page.

This happens because no one has time to read 100% of the status changes, posts, shares and announcements of 100% of the people and pages they interact with on Facebook. Not enough time for all "followers" to read it all every day.

They have studied and calculated the amount of time the average user will stay there, scrolling through things, clicking, posting, reading, sharing, etc. So FB decides what is important and to whom. They decide this by assigning weight or priority to people who regularly interact with your posts. If your posts are not interactive, fewer people will see them. They also claim that telling people to like or share will lower the value of those shares or likes.

If you want more people to see your posts, you have two options: Pay for more reach or post things that spontaneously get comments, shares and likes. This, of course, is more difficult for posts about tractor parts than for posts about kittens.

Saturation. Gone are the days when YOUR site was the SOURCE...

FB and others like it, skew and dilute ...

One of those "learn to live with it" kind of things.

Seems the only quick and maybe efficient way is to place FB ads. This is the thing that FB loves it actually.
