Facebook Addresses ‘Pay To Play’ News Feed Claims

Several Facebook marketers have been angry with the site, feeling that posts have been hidden from fans as a way to get businesses to pay for advertising models such as promoted posts. These feelings were brought to the forefront when a New York Times writer tried an experiment to see if Facebook really is suppressing unpaid posts. Facebook responded Monday, saying that engagement among people with followers has risen 34 percent year-over-year.
