Unless you are living under a rock you may have heard Facebook is taking over! Now nearly double the size of Myspace, Facebook is still not quite as friendly to bands, but with all those people on there, it is time to get your band on there.

they have already made a Facebook Group for their band. A Facebook

Setting Up A Profile
- Add a Photo- If no one knows who you are, I suggest using a picture or logo associated with your band. This means do not use the picture of your drummer barfing all over his fling in Ohio. When people are on Facebook, they will see people becoming fans of your band in the newsfeed, the more recognizable your band is in that stream the more likely they will recognize you and “friend” you.
- Click “Edit Page”- Once you do this, you have a lot of options! In our next blog we will cover the more advanced parts of this process.
- Make Yourself A Fan!- I hope you are a fan of your band, so make your self the first fan. This will get added in to the newsfeed and your friends will see you now have a page for your band and hopefully they will add your band. If you have your doubts, you may wanna give them a nudge by posting a new “note”, announcing your page.
