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
