There are a number of great Facebook apps that enable bands to add a dedicated music tab to their band Facebook Pages. Some of the best include ReverbNation’s MyBand Facebook app, RootMusic’s BandPage Facebook app, iLike’s (or now MySpace’s) iLike Facebook app, and Nimbit’s Facebook app.
I’ve been using MyBand for GarageSpin’s Facebook Page for some time. Many of the newer ones, such as BandPage, however, looked sleeker and ran better, to the point where I loosely considered switching. Until recently — ReverbNation launched a series of upgrades which are quite slick.
Check out the full MyBand App feature details on ReverbNation’s blog. Or, skim the summary below, which I’m pasting from Jed’s announcement email:
1. More attractive layout and design (still with unlimited songs, videos, and photos)2. Free custom header banner (Artists upload banner and link)3. Fan-exclusive downloads (Artists can exchange a free download for the fan’s email address inside of facebook, integrated with our FanReach product)4. Tour map, show schedule with details, ticket links, sharing5. Enhanced sharing mechanisms. Fans can share a song, show, video, photos, etc with friends on facebook. All facebook sharing uses our awesome sharing widget: http://tinyurl.com/28bbu3y6. Links to retailers like iTunes and Amazon7. Integrated Direct to Fan store (Reverb Store)8.
