Facebook is well-known to the public and it’s definitely one of the popular social networks to keep you always available to your friends. You just need to have a Facebook account so you can send text, photo, link, video and instant messages for immediate sharing. As simple as that!
Open a Facebook Account
It’s actually easy and you will only need the basic info like your name, birthday, email and password to do so. There is only one thing: for the security purpose and to prevent spam users, you have to upload a photo of yourself for verification, and you will need the security code sent to your register email address to complete the account opening process.
If you want to open a Facebook account for a celebrity, band, company or business instead of personal, you can create a Facebook Page, that’s also called Facebook Fan Page. In this case, you will need to provide a little extra info for your property. Just follow the instructions on the register page to get started.
How to Upload Video to Facebook
Uploading and sharing videos on Facebook is quite easy. Click Share a photo or video at the top of your page’s Timeline. Click Upload Photos/Video and select a video from your computer in AVI or MP4 or any other popular video formats. Fill up the info in Basic tab like video Introduction, Title, Tags and Custom Thumbnail, continue to go to Captions/Advanced/Crossposting tabs to set other info if needed.
If you are using Facebook app on your mobile phone instead of using it on computer, it’s basically the same easy way to upload a video for sharing: tap the Photo icon in the top-middle of the Facebook app, a screen appears that includes the photos and videos on your mobile device, then tap to choose the video that you want to upload, then click Done. Type your thoughts about the video in the window that appears.
How to Upload Audio to Facebook – Build Your Facebook MP3 Player
When you want to upload an audio file, for example, an MP3 song to Facebook, it’s totally another story. Due to the fact that Facebook does not support direct audio upload like video, it is not possible to upload an audio file at this moment. However, we did find some indirect approaches that can help uploading MP3 file to Facebook.
Approach I: Apps or Plugins or other HTML5 MP3 Player Apps
This probably could be the primary and professional way to upload audio contents to Facebook. Visit Chirbit Facebook page here after you log in to your own Facebook account, sign up for Cirbit and follow the instructions there to continue. Start from Choose New File Upload -> Choose file button and select the MP3 file that you wish to share on Facebook -> Add description for the audio file -> Submit -> Go to your Profile and then click Share icon.
Another one you can try is Band Profile. This app helps you share tracks, list upcoming gigs, sell music and grow your fan base. The Band Profile app synchronizes with an account at ReverbNation, a Web site that provides online marketing tools for musicians. Visit its app site on Facebook here and follow almost the same instructions of Chirbit to have it installed on your Facebook page.
Or you can search more HTML5 MP3 Player apps and plugins and then upload MP3 audio file to Facebook through them.
Approach II: Leawo Blu-ray Player as Alternative
For some audio files already shared on Facebook and at the same time they are downloadable, in this case Leawo Blu-ray Player can reply those audio files in various formats like AAC, AC3, APE, DTS, FLAC, M4A, MID, MKA, MP2, MP3, MPA, OGG, TTA, WAV, WMA.

They can receive the free software after 24 hours when the sharing post was sent out.
Approach III: Upload MP3 to 3rd-Party Platforms then Share on Facebook
Compared with the two methods mentioned above, this is the easiest for the public to handle. With the help of those well-designed 3rd-party platforms or service providers, you can upload audio files to their sites first, and then share the audio links on your Facebook page.
