Facebook to offer greater opportunities for musicians

As a platform for musicians to share their music, Facebook is now offering artists the opportunity to reach a wider audience with its ‘Subscribe’ function, Mashable has reported.

In a similar way to the ‘Like’ function found on many bands/companies Facebook page, the ‘Subscribe’ button allows any user to subscribe to those artists’ personal profiles and view anything shared publicly.

Further benefits include the capability of reaching an unlimited audience, as previously musicians were limited to 5,000 friends. It also allows bands to connect with fans and friends more intimately through their own profiles rather than their band’s page.
