How Do You Add People on a Facebook Band?

by Emma Nichols

A useful way for bands and musicians to get their music out, attract new fans and keep their old fans up to date is by creating profiles on social networking websites. Facebook has an option that allows bands and musicians to create their own profile that is slightly different from a personal profile. Instead of locking the profile to people in your network or friends, the band page is open for anyone to see, and the owner of the profile does not have to physically add people. Instead, people add themselves to the band's profile themselves.

1

Log into your Facebook account.

2

Click "Create New Facebook Page" on the Facebook home page.

3

Click on the circle next to "Artist, Band or Public Figure."

4

Select "Band" or "Musician" from the drop-down menu.

5

Click "Create Page."

6

Type your band's name in the title to make it easily accessible.

7

Upload photos of your band in the profile pictures album and edit the biography to include facts about the band and the names of each member.

8

Click "Edit Profile."

9

Type each band member's name in the box labeled "Members." Facebook does not have an option to tag members in this box as of January 2010.

Tips

  • Regularly update the status of your band's Facebook page with news, updates and links to the band's music or band profiles on other social networking websites. This will help keep your current fans interested and draw new fans in.
  • You can share your band's Facebook with your personal Facebook friends by clicking "Share" on the lower left corner of the page. They can then add themselves to your band's Facebook by pressing the "Like" button at the top of the band's page.
