How to post MP3 audio files to Facebook


This week's handy #ManicMonday Q&A from my Facebook business page, is a good one for all you musos and music lovers out there who are looking to share music on Facebook.


Funnily enough, Facebook wouldn't allow me to post this as a Discussion Topic or a comment, because of 'abusive content' --> I suspect this means they don't want people sharing audio files on their site.

So, without further ado, Helen asks:

"Do you know of a way to post audio MP3 files to Facebook? Thanks!"


Well HL, it's a tricky one, because while you can post vids to Facebook easily, audio files are a bit different... probably because of copyright laws. Still, it's possible, you naughty thing.

What you need to do is to upload your audio file onto a file sharing website, and then share the track on Facebook as a link.

Let's go through it, step by step.

Step 1. Create an account with a free file sharing website for audio, video and images such as 4shared. Log in.

Step 2. Upload your MP3 Audio file from your computer onto your 4shared account by clicking the 'upload' button. This will give you a page with a hyperlink on it. Copy it.


Step 3. Log into your Facebook page and go to your profile page or the business page where you wish to share this link.

Step 4. Click the 'link' icon at the bottom of the text update field, in order to share your audio file that has been uploaded to the file sharing site, by pasting the hyperlink from the page created in Step 2.

Step 5. Include any text to describe the track, such as artist, track name, or description of the music. Then attach the link to the text by clicking 'attach'.

Step 6. Click the 'share' button to post your update and share the audio file with your friends and fans!
