How Musicians Can Use Facebook’s New Page Upgrades

From diymusician.cdbaby.com:
Pretty soon, all Facebook Pages (for businesses, brands, bands, and media) will resemble the newest redesign for Facebook profiles. But you can choose to upgrade now!

So what’s different? And how can I use the new Facebook Page functionality to promote my music?

Those are great questions, and we’d love to hear from artists who are already putting the new design to good use. But here is what we know so far:

1) No more tabs up top. Now there is a left-hand link panel beneath the profile picture. But there is a trade-off. While your tab names can be longer, the placement may mean less people click the tabs. Artists may need to put a little more thought into keeping their wall/posts engaging or make sure that the default landing tab displays the most interesting content.

2) Photostrip across the top allows artists to create a broader AND more immediate impression with the additional emphasis on the visuals. Put your best press shots and live photos up there!
