ReverbNation’s Facebook app My Band gets a new name (Band Profile), new features, and it’s still 100% FREE

Today we’re announcing some major upgrades to our popular Facebook app, My Band. We’re giving it a new name (Band Profile) and some seriously powerful new features. More details are below, but to check them out right away you just need to login to Band Profile and click on the Appearance tab (if you haven’t upgraded your band page to Facebook’s new layout, you’ll need to do that too, but it’s as easy as clicking a blue ‘upgrade my page’ button upgrade your Facebook page).

Your App has Fan Boosters to grow your Fanbase

We know fans are critically important for an artist, and that’s why we wove Fan Boosters into the fabric of the new app. Fan Boosters help you grow your mailing list, build the Likes to your Facebook page or spread your music virally. They are super easy to activate, and they work automatically after you set them.

Your App is now COMPLETELY customizable

You can customize just about everything on the new app. Colors, button location, visualization options and content. Not only is it powerful, but easy. The customization interface we built is just flat out fun to use.

Your App has a new Name: Band Profile

When ReverbNation launched My Band in 2007, it was the world’s FIRST band profile app on Facebook. In 2009 we updated MyBand to make it more powerful, which was an overwhelming success. Out of the over 50,000 apps on Facebook, My Band became one of  21 Featured Apps. Today, we’re taking another giant leap forward, changing the name to make it more relevant, and adding some powerful features.

All your favorite features are still there and it’s still FREE

Your ReverbNation content and the content on your app are always in sync eliminating the need to edit your content in multiple locations. It’s still FREE and still offers all the best ways to manage your Facebook presence.

A few notes on the transition:

  • You will need Facebook’s updated layout for Band pages, you’ll need to go to: http://www.facebook.com/pages/manage and click the blue ‘upgrade my pages’ button to upgrade.
  • If you have not yet added the application but wish to do so, simply go to ReverbNation.com/AddMyBand
  • If you have already added MyBand to your band page on Facebook, your app will switch to the new Band Profile tab automatically. To check out the new customization features, login to Band Profile and navigate to the Appearance tab.
  • We’ve done our best to make sure the app looks dynamite, but we recommend that all artists login to Band Profile and make sure their app looks the way they want it to

Show us your creativity in the comments

Login to Band Profile, visit the new Appearance Tab and start customizing, then leave a link to your band page in the comments. We’ll keep our eyes on the comments and dish out a featured artist spot to the most creative, best-looking app.

    this is great…..I am not a computer pro…I still like to talk directly to you folks about getting set up….love what you do….thanks and
    God bless…

  • United States - March 10, 2011 reply

    That fan booster was an excellent idea. I enjoying the upgraded version of My Band!

  • Vic Stathopoulos - March 11, 2011 reply

    The new Band Profile is a major improvement and its great to look at and easy to read. I also think the fan booster is a great idea. Its great now the navigation is on the left because you can go to the Vic Stathopoulos Wall with ease and see the Band Profile with ease. I think the Band Profile could have been called Music Player, thats easier for people to understand.

  • ReverbNation Upgrades Facebook App ‹ Independent Artist Awards - March 11, 2011 reply

    […] No comment Share ReverbNation has upgraded its free Facebook app, My Band and renamed it Band Profile. The app competes with Facebook solutions from DamnThe Radio and Root Music. Like those apps, […]

    How about enabling the changes from our control room here at Reverbnation, for those of us who don’t wish to have a Facebook account ?

  • Frank - March 11, 2011 reply

    I love apps, but this one is great. Fan booster is indeed a great thing and don´t forget…it´s free! As it´s fully customizable I think this will get very popular. I´m very excited.

  • Morgan @ MRR - March 11, 2011 reply

    Rock ON!! This is AWESOME! Loving the new features! This will truly benefit the bands in so many ways. The app was already awesome, but you just made it awesome-er. 😉 Nicely done!

  • AVANZA - March 11, 2011 reply

    Thankyou thankyou thankyou lovely Reverbs! But agreed with Vic Stathopulos, please think about new name, not all of us are members of the gangs … sorry, bands :)

  • bren - March 11, 2011 reply

    its a very good upgrade although One More Thing : Please just integrate the EXISTING WALL! we don’t need two… its the only thing you guys left out. It can be done as i’ve seen it on Rootmusic. It makes so much more sense.

  • Sue - March 12, 2011 reply

    Real helpful tips:

    1) If you want people to listen to your music, do NOT require a like, a share, an email or anything — just simply let anyone and everyone listen to your music.

    2) If you want people to download your “free” music and to listen to it and spread the word — do NOT require a like, an email, a tweet, a FB mention, or anything.

    3) If you want to keep your fan base nice and small and never let it spread out of your own little circle, then require people to like, click, join, email, etc.

  • C Bret - March 13, 2011 reply

    I agree with Sue above 100% and until I read it the way she put it, I would have asked that those “features” be removed. But now I think, ” sure, go ahead and use that stuff… I will gladly take your turned-away-would-be-fans and friends. ”

    The rest of the profile is Great! Smooth, sleek and Oh, so much faster!

    Vic, simply name the tab whatever you like in the settings, it’s that simple.

    Peace to all.

  • Fernando - March 13, 2011 reply

    Sue has a point but… composers musicians producers studios all are investing sometimes our all lifes on making the music available…. for at least one like! one email connecton. I know how it is hard to make that decision but, if people just don´t want to give a like, email or share…. on facebook, well there are a lot of other musicians willing to give it without anything like that :) so. Mine will be just a fair trade,,, my music for a email, like or share, anyway the reverbnation fanreach system is quite fast to get out… just one clik, that´s all and people will stop receiving our “Souls” for free. :)

  • Jennifer - March 30, 2011 reply

    Why is reverbnation/my band no longer accessible as a tab/button on my facebook page? it seems it has to be on a separate page now that is not accessible to the page my friends are on, and when I go to the star on my “home” page, it leads me not to my RN page, but to a “welcome please join” page that my friends don’t have access to. The tab worked. This doesn’t.

    Neal - March 30, 2011 reply

    @Jennifer

    Sorry you are having trouble. Facebook made the change to do away with tabs, and the adding of applications on personal profiles. Unfortunately, ReverbNation had no input or notification of these changes. You can add the application to any bad/music page at Facebook from here: http://www.reverbnation.com/addmyband

    If you have additional questions, don’t hesitate to let us know on our support site here: http://support.reverbnation.com , which is also accessible from the “Feedback/Support Tab” on the right side of any page at ReverbNation

    I am also a fan of the Cuban singer
    Is ona shame that reflected his biography does not appear that the author of these songs is his own father who lives in Helsinki Finland and his name is Antonio Gomez Carballe.
    I think that he would be very grateful and most complete biography of the singer.

    @smplx thacitzen

    Hi there. It may be as easy as hitting publish (even after publishing the app will only show as default for those who have not yet “liked” your page. This is a Facebook restriction. But you should really check with the experts — drop an email to support@reverbnation and I’m sure they can help.

    No problem! Just go to Control Room — FanReach– Manage Contacts and you will see anyone who has signed up to your mailing list.

    Just as a heads up, we have a support site here for help: http://support.reverbnation.com , so be sure to bookmark it!

    Shelly - November 10, 2011 reply

    Hi John — Unfortunately, because the Band Profile is designed specifically for Facebook, we don’t have anything like it that you can post as a widget to your home page.
    I’ll forward your suggestion along to our developers though for them to consider. Thanks!
