Forrester’s report, titled “Social Relationship Strategies That Work,” confirms that because so few people see organic (i.e. not sponsored or promoted) posts on Facebook, it’s a waste of time, money and resources. The study comes on the heels of Facebook’s latest announcement that it will start cutting reach on “overly promotional” brand posts in 2015.
