The annoying reality on Faceboook is that only about 17 percent of your Facebook fans, if you’re lucky, actually see your status updates in their feed.
Facebook wants you to pay, either by buying a Facebook ad or a Sponsored Post, so that more people can see your updates. When Facebook page owners finally realized that, they started complaining loudly.

It’s a way to flag your fans to your content, without paying, so they don’t miss anything.
