The Indie Initiative – How To Create A Band Facebook Page

PALO ALTO, CA (Hypebot) – Recently Mike B decided to create a presence on Facebook for his blog GarageSpin which focuses on trends and technologies for garage-based home recording studios with great side trips looking at the challenges and opportunities that indie musicians face.

Social networking giant Facebook is an opportunity, and this week on Hypebot's Daily DIY Mike shares how to create a presence on Facebook. Yesterday he explained the differences between Facebook "pages” and "profiles" and today he explains how to get started.

It takes about 2 minutes:

  • Use your Facebook login to access your account (or create a new one).
  • Then go to the Create New Facebook Page.
  • Select the 3rd radio button titled "Artist, Band, or Public Figure".
  • Then select "Band" or "Musician" (or whatever applies) in the dropdown box.
  • Click on "Create Page".
  • Your Facebook Page now exists. Now pimp it out with stuff. (Note: When you upload your music, you will need to upload a driver's license or passport photo to verify your ID.)
