Thanks for spotlighting the issue. It's certainly hurt our show's page, which was our main vehicle for sharing previews, reviews photos and fan participation. Hurt our fund-raising efforts late last year as well.

My biggest complaint is that lack of options for participating in the new model. Boosting posts one by one is just ridiculous. We'd be much more open to a flat fee per month that lets us reach everyone who asked for our content. The current proposition is pointless and incredibly expensive.

I also hope we see more commentary on the issue from the fans' point of view. They also were led to believe they would receive info upon Liking something. Now they mostly don't, subject to the whims of FB's AI. It's a really crap move, badly handled.

I've always felt if a fan will give you his or hers email address it should be used like a "Thankyou note " that builds personal communication between everyone if done correctly. Twitter as of today can be used the same way though the future with advertising may force it to become similar to FB to create revenue, loosing that personable touch.
When a band takes the time to send direct personal contact such as opinions on tunes where working on , free tickets, meeting the band ect it builds a following.Even the Rolling Stones have been going back to the personable touch
