(CBS SF) — Posting an event on Facebook can have unintended consequences, sometimes for the good. Just ask eight-year-old Dylan Spoering, whose keyboard concert went viral.

ON FACEBOOK: Viral Event Posting Turns Cute Concert Into Massive Event

The Minnesota kid put out a handmade sign inviting neighbors to hear him play piano on the front lawn.

618 guests confirmed “Going” to the Facebook event and the result forever transformed what a piano recital can be.
