How to Add Music Interests to Facebook
By Alan Sembera
You can know somebody for years and never realize you share a passion for a little-known musical artist. By sharing your musical interests on your Facebook Timeline, you can open up that side of your personality to friends and others who visit your page. You can list the types of music you like or the bands you like, and even list individual albums, songs or performers in many cases.
Log in to your Facebook account.
Go to your Timeline and click the large "Likes" button at the top of the page.
Click the "Add Music" button in the "Favorites" section. If you have already added a musical interest, you will need to click "Edit" to add more.
Type the name of a Facebook page into the "Music" field. If you don't know exactly what you want, just begin typing descriptive terms into the text box and Facebook will automatically suggest pages in a drop-down box based on your entry. Click on one of the selections and it will be added to your musical interests.
Add as many music interests as you want. When you have finished adding interests, click the "Done Editing" button. You music interests will show up in the "Likes" section of your Timeline. To see which of your likes are in the musical category, a viewer will have to click on the "View All" link in the "Likes" section.
- Select a privacy setting for your musical interests by clicking the small downward-pointing arrow next to the field where you add pages to your Likes. The default setting is to allow everyone to see your musical interests, but you can change the setting to make them visible only to your friends or just yourself.
- To remove a musical interest from your Timeline, click the "Likes" button at the top of the page and then click the "Edit" button. You can then click the small "x" at the upper right-hand corner of each page icon to remove the page from your Timeline.
