Four Ways To Improve Facebook Pages

facebookFacebook have now permitted artists to create a dedicated page. It’s a smooth registration process and enables artists to enter the Facebook network, something previously difficult since ‘non-real’ entities, i.e. not an actual person, were deleted. The actual page set-up is disappointing – there is very little on an Artist Page that is innovative or time saving. Add photo, music, events, discography – they’re the same as every other network. Why not incorporate our suggestions?

  1. Allow XML or CSV uploads of the discography. Why does every network insist we type in the Discography over and over again!
  2. Allow ICS calendar feeds for events. Again, why do they expect us to login to a dozen profiles to add a single event? They could simply allow subscription to an ICS feed.
  3. Whilst individual profiles enable news feeds from an external RSS, artist pages don’t. Why not?
  4. Allow an RSS from Flickr (or similar) for photos, since so many artists now keep their photos on a photo share network

The one positive is the use of Social Ads, which can enable the promotion of an event or new release, albeit, in return for cash. This could well represent the future of online advertising and so we’re keen to try it out.
