Some practices that could hurt your FB algorithm
1-Joining lots of groups you can't engage in.
You only need a little number you can engage meaningfully with their contents and not those you will have to mute or keep ignoring notifications from them.
Also stay away from Markets groups where everyone goes to promote their stuffs especially those groups where people spam one another. You may also be marked spam
2-Adding too much friends you have nothing in common with. You will keep skipping their posts and they won't also engage with yours.
This will affect your reach as you will end up adding a bunch of inactive friends as many people will not see your post due to lack of engaments.
3-Viewing story updates without reacting to any of them.
Reacting to stories also helps yours get noticed and increase your reach. That's why the reaction buttons were provided there. So, react and don't be a passive viewer.
4- commenting without reacting is also not a good practice as the algorithm won't be able to register your interest on the post
5. Using the like button too often. The like button doesn't prime the algo as much as the Love button. So use it the love button more.
6- Posting too much in a day.
Don't Post anymore than 1-2 Posts per day and no closer than 4 hours apart otherwise they will compete against each other and people won't see them.
If you want to Post more then, Post in your Stories but don't go Posting a whole bunch as people don't have time to go through them all and most people won't even see them.
7 Sharing posts on your your wall.
Shared Posts hardly get any reach. You can add your own contribution to it to make it look like an original post.
8. Sending messages to people who don't reply you often. You may be marked spam.
Also don't open a message if you are not ready to reply. People can remove you for this ghosting act.
