Unlike MySpace, music has never really taken off on Facebook in the same way, and to be honest we are a little baffled as to why. Sure you can embed a YouTube video on your wall or utilize a few relatively unknown and unused music apps, but why is there such a large disconnect? Certainly a large majority of the music lovers that were once loyal to MySpace must have transitioned to the digital realm of Facebook by now! So where is the love?
More and more I am starting to see artists becoming very active with their Facebook pages. Their activity has become much more interactive and personal as Facebook offers a whole new way for artists to connect with their fans. More and more artist are sharing new music, offering free downloads, creating Facebook events for upcoming concerts, holding contests, and even streaming live shows. Surprisingly, one thing I do not often see is a merchandise shop hosted from their Facebook page.
