How to Upload Music to a Facebook Profile

Facebook is a popular website whose simple, understated standard user profiles set the online social networking platform apart from its competitors. While Facebook does not offer much in the way of profile appearance customization, you may personalize your profile by adding applications and widgets. Facebook users who want to upload music to their profiles can do so through one of many audio playback widgets available from the Facebook applications database. Facebook Music Player, which is one such application, comes preinstalled in artist, band and musician profiles.
