During the Dave Matthews Band concert last week at Darien Lake, I figured I would upload a photo from my phone to my Facebook page, saying something very creative like “DMB at Darien Lake.” Why waste time during a concert doing this? It’s a fair question, but I felt like it! I thought it was a good picture and I wanted to share it.
About five minutes later, I checked back and the post had been deleted! I thought maybe I had just deleted the post by accident on my phone, so I tried posting again. Up goes the picture, with a similar very catchy tagline of “Enjoying DMB at Darien Lake” or something like that. Within seconds, down goes the post again! It was gone, and this time I was sure I didn’t delete it.
Then I thought, maybe Dave Matthews Band doesn’t allow pictures to be posted from its concerts during shows? If that’s the case though, how could it be tracked so quickly? Through an automatic keyword search? As you can see I have plenty of questions and no answers.
I was determined to get this picture up on my Facebook page, so I posted a picture from the concert and said, “Maybe Facebook won’t delete the picture if I say I am enjoying the ‘Gary Matthews Group’ at Darien Lake.”
By the way, Gary Matthews is a marginal player (at best) for the New York Mets.
Sure enough, the post wasn’t deleted!! I was able to successfully upload my picture, by not writing Dave Matthews Band or DMB. Gary Matthews saved the day! I still don’t have an answer though – do certain bands prevent people from Facebooking and Tweeting photos during live shows? I am not sure – I could use your help! So could Gary Matthews – the Mets have gotten rid of him.
