How to Add Music Player to your Facebook Page

Update (Sept 7th, 2012):
The instructions in this post are no longer valid. However, I am leaving this post as it contains some useful information and comments.
Facebook tools/apis have been constantly changing. If you want to use their tools going to their website directly is your best bet.

If  you maintain a Facebook page for your band, Facebook provides an application called the Music Player that you can use to upload songs to your band’s page.

When you upload a new song it is automatically published into the news feed of all your fans. You don’t have to send out fan updates to publicize new songs. Publishing into your fan’s news feed is currently the best way to get the attention of Facebook users.

Here are the steps to add Music Player to your Facebook band page :

Login to Facebook. Make sure you are the page admin for the page you are editing.
