How to Put My Original Music on Facebook

By J.M. Chanel

Musicians with profiles on Facebook cannot directly upload songs to their profile. To share original music on Facebook, you must sign up for a separate online music hosting service, such as ReverbNation. You can upload an unlimited amount of songs to ReverbNation and share them with a streaming Flash audio player. ReverbNation offers a free Facebook app called Band Profile, which can embed a music player from your ReverbNation account right to your band or solo act's Facebook fan page.
