I hope someone good at Facebook might be able to advise me on this?:
I play in a live band. We have a theatre show coming up soon, and the theatre posted about our upcoming show on their Facebook business page, so that their page followers could engage etc and buy tickets if they wished. It ended up about 500 people tagged themselves in the post's comments as interested, so the venue now suggests we let them all know when we have news or updates/ticket giveaways etc that they might be interested in before the show next month (the venue won't do any follow up work/posting etc, they only give us one initial post, so we have to do it). That's great, but as the venue is the Administrator of their page (and of course I'm not), and neither my personal profile or our band page has any authority on their venue business page, I can't work out how we're supposed to make contact with the tagged people in the competition post, and the venue isn't sure either. I can try to send them each a personal message, but as I'm not personal Facebook friends with them, it will just go to their spam folder and prob not be seen. Plus, sending 500 messages is stupid. I thought about just writing a post with our news and tagging all the people, but Facebook won't complete a tag for any of them, as we're not friends. And clearly, I can't send 500 strangers friend requests.. lol.
How do people do this, there must be an appropriate way? Even the venue doesn't know. Sorry for being a Facebook No0b. I don't want to miss out on eventually contacting so many potential ticket buyers for our show, but I don't want to do the wrong thing either.
I know this isn't really a tech forum, but there are lots of smart people on OzB, so any advice at all is greatly appreciated, thank you.
