Increase Your Facebook Reach by 100% Starting Today

I am an administrator on about 10 active fanpages, and lately I have been watching the Facebook reach numbers. There were several updates last year that seemed to make a big difference in who saw your updates, and while early numbers were reporting 16%, they didn’t seem to distinguish between the different types of updates.
