Help Stop Facebook's Abuse of Small Business Owners!

Like many people during the Great Recession, I started up a small handmade business and followed the advice to get a Facebook Business Page for online marketing. It was free. And the best way to let people know about my new business offerings. But in the last year Facebook changed the rules. Now my posts are not seen by the people who Like my Page unless I pay to "boost" a post at a minimum of $5 per boost. Having followed the advice to post at least 10 times a week, that means using this service will now cost me at least $2600/year and that's not counting what I have to pay to get more Likes! I don't mind the idea of paying for a service -- I would pay! -- but this is too much of a leap!
That's why I created a petition to Mark Zuckerberg, CEO.
