My Facebook Takeover recap

If you missed it, Depeche Mode are letting their fans Takeover their official Facebook page for the next year to share their thoughts and memories of the band and more. There’s been some amazing fan posts already and I was able to be apart of it yesterday. Will some of our other admins be apart of it as well?? We’ll let you know and share their experiences here if they do.  It was a fun, a little nerve wracking for me, but here’s a little recap of being apart of it.

The people I worked with to get my posts up were amazing and very encouraging. They send you over their expectations and some legal stuff they need you to do. Nothing hard or scary, just part of releasing your info on the page etc. If you haven’t applied or are nervous to, don’t be. They are very helpful and make you feel comfortable with the whole program. At least they did for me.

Luckily he was up for it and got it back to me quickly so that I could share the interview. Keep that in mind if you’re post ideas include pictures of people or items that might need to be cleared. They will help you out with that and get you all set up with it.

Being an Admin on a DM fan site has its ups and downs, but it's a lot of fun. One of my favorite things to do for the…

I’m sure they say this to everyone who is apart of it, but they really seemed to like what I was sending over and requested that I make a video talking about being an administrator on a DM fan page. While it was very nice of them to ask, it was also terrifying to me! Not to be overly dramatic, but when they ask for a video that will be shared on a FB with over 7 million followers… well, I got a little freaked out. They were kind enough to let me promote the site on such an amazing platform, I just had to do it.

If you're new to I'd encourage you to check out the site. You'll find things like special interviews…

My last post was a memory of seeing the band live. A unique, but fun concert for sure.

I have seen Depeche over 30+ times now, but one of my favorite memories of seeing them live was at the Santa Barbara…
