Over the years I've seen a lot of articles and advice that in The New World Of Music, it's important to have a good social media presence, with lots of content on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. And on the surface, it makes sense--no one goes to a show that they don't hear about, no one listens to music that they don't know exists, etc. But... I've noticed a trend with younger, local, musicians (mid thirties and younger, concentrated in the twenties) where liking them of FB results in a flood of posts, every day, with no real musical value. There's several selfies, every day, a thank you post or two for their most recent show and anyone who came out or who played with them, some pictures or demo tracks from the past, or a reposting of the link to their Bandcamp page, a reminder of an upcoming show several weeks out, etc. For me, this is too much. I know that "email is dead", but no-one would think of sending a half dozen short emails a day to everyone on their old-school mailing list, even though it takes about as much effort as an FB post. Spamming like that is considered rude. Or, it was the last time I checked. As a result, I end up having to unfollow the acts in question, because there's no way to "channel" all those posts into "Things I Really Want To Hear" about and "Narcissistic Reflexing Self-documentation". Really all I want is to know when they're playing a show, and I don't want to hear about that more than, oh, twice. Once when it's first announced, and them maybe a reminder the day before the show. And, when new music is released. And by "new music" I don't mean an iPhone video of you singing along to a Hall And Oates song in your car (for example). As a result, I probably miss out on some stuff that I actually want to hear about, but the signal to noise ratio just precludes me putting up with all of it. It's as if they assume that they're the only act you're following, and not thinking "****--what if there's a dozen other acts all doing the same thing? Who the hell wants to read all that?" Anyone else bothered by this?
