Best Practices: Musicians on Facebook

Last week we shared an Infographic for How Musicians used Facebook in 2011, and this week we’d like to follow that up with some Best Practices for Facebook.

We’ve based these Best Practices off of the research and work we’ve done with artists big and small over the last two years. By implementing these tactics, musicians are taking advantage of the variety of opportunities on Facebook to be discovered and heard by fans from all over the world.


We plan to share more Best Practices and Tips in 2012, so please leave us a comment below and let us know what you’d like to see next!

  3. very clear and easy to read. thanks so much

  4. is it your page or your person that you’re hoping to get tagged in photos? How does it help if it’s your face, rather than your band, being tagged?
    thanks for all the info tho!

    • Your page. When a fan tags your page in the photo your page gains all of the benefits that we described in the slidedeck – Ex: Facebook will pick up that the fan is more engaged with the band, so Facebook will show more of that band’s content to the fan.

  5. Great tips! thanks I will make sure to update my FB page!!
