    Hey Kharim,

    I have been looking into the Facebook posts reach potential lately and I have been wanting to ask a social media expert about it.
    Do you think the number of Facebook page likes can affect the power of a post reach?
    for example, if a page with 3 million likes tags a celebrity figure. The homepage feed of the celebrity fans would show the post, as their favorite Celebrity was tagged and mentioned, but would it be the same case for every page that tags and mentions the Celebrity?

    Thank you.
