How to Upload an MP3 on Facebook

By Brandy Alexander

An MP3 (MPEG Audio Stream, Layer III) is a file that plays audio content such as songs, speeches or auditory books. Using Facebook, a highly-used social networking website, you can publish an MP3 file on your profile page to enhance your content and provide an entertaining element for your visitors. If you have an MP3 file and a Web host, you can use your Facebook account to upload the MP3 on your page and create a more dynamic presentation.

Things You'll Need

  • MP3 file
  • Web host
  • Facebook account

Step 1

Place your MP3 file on your Web host in the same folder or directory that you keep your other Web page files in and make a note of this location. This allows visitors to listen to your upload when it is published on your Facebook page.

Step 2

Log in to your Facebook account and click the "Profile" link.

Step 3

Click the "Wall" tab and then click the "Link" icon at the bottom of the search field.

Step 4

Type in the full URL address of your MP3 file in the text field under the "Link" title. For example: http://www.yourdomain.com/music.mp3

Step 5

Place your cursor in the text field above and type in the terms that you want the MP3 link to display as. Click the "Attach" button when ready.

Step 6

Double click the default "Unknown Artist" and "Unknown Album" entries after the "Artist" and "Album" section to enter the relevant information and click the "Share" button when done. Your post displays your entry with a play button so that visitors can listen to your MP3 upload when they visit your page.

Tips & Warnings

  • Never upload an MP3 file that you do not have permission to share.
