To Facebook Message Spam Or Not To Facebook Message Spam

1378602_610905745627123_220113826_nWe’ve often discussed that you can spend your time more wisely than writing potential fans spammy Facebook messages, but an interaction I had this week got me thinking. Over on the Defend Pop Punk group on Facebook a user posted a picture of some spam from a group he received and countless other users talked about how they feel about being spammed by bands. To my surprise many of them didn’t mind being spammed as long as the circumstances were right. If you want to see how genuine music fans feel about this practice, this thread is an enlightening read.
