When it's a page promoting something, like a convention, I'd only want news pertaining to that specific thing. I subscribe to their posts specifically for that purpose, I can get news on other things plenty of other ways.

A few years back, Otakon's facebook page kept sending out things that were related to anime etc, but not actually about their convention, it drove me nuts.

When a convention has a page on Facebook, Twitter, etc it should be used as another way to get out news about the event, like another avenue to get people to see things like press releases, registration opening, and panel submissions going live. If it floods with unrelated items, it makes it harder to find the actually relevant items.

There are a few exceptions, like when many conventions posted asking people to donate to tsunami relief this past year, but in general you should ask "is this directly related to what my page is about?" if the answer is no, don't post it.
