This is indeed how it works. I have a business page, for which FB helpfully informs me that it has shown my post to 14% of the people who have asked to see it, and would I like to pay them to let the rest see it. I would not.

As for complications arising... some of my family use FB as the main channel for important communications such as news of impending parenthood or a death in the family. I, and others, have missed such announcements, and then the person making the announcement has been upset by people apparently ignoring it. Drives me to gnashing my teeth.

I haven't seen a post from you for a long time and assumed you'd given up on Facebook. Off to check your "timeline" (gah, they don't work well in my browser).

Well, there were quite a few posts I hadn't seen!

Also... I'm sure you would love to come to Monica's singing course here. I'd put you up, and there is free transport with friends driving from near Milton Keynes. Any chance?
