  • <div class="imageFloatRight"><a href="http://www.ilike.com/" target="_blank" title="iLike Website"><img src="/media/images/blog/ilike.gif" border="0" /></a></div><p>Even though there are rumors on the “internets” that Facebook is launching a <a href="http://www.techcrunch.com/2007/10/05/facebook-to-take-on-itunes/" target="_blank" title="Techcrunch - Facebook Music Rumors">MP3 or iTunes store</a> and maybe an artist friendly section it still doesn’t help you right now. So what does iLike have to do with Facebook? It’s one of main applications people on Facebook use to connect to each other.</p>
<p>What is iLike? Best way to describe it using the text right from their website:
</p><blockquote>Discover and share playlists, new music that matches your tastes, and concerts by your favorite artists. The iLike Sidebar* scans your music library, recommends new music, and helps you connect musically with your friends and the broader iLike community.</blockquote>
<p> I would describe iLike as a sub-social network since it relies heavily on media players like iTunes and Facebook to create the social links. Or maybe a parasite network would be a better name.</p>
<p>The two main links that iLike creates is what are your friends listening too and similar artists to what you already listen too. As a music artist you would use iLike to expose your music to fans with similar likes and also share your musical tastes with your fans.</p>
<p>If you’re not on iLike it’s fairly simple to <a href="http://www.ilike.com/account/artist_signup" target="_blank" title="iLike Artist Sign-up">sign-up and get things going</a>. Think of iLike as another arm in your starfish of social media.</p>
<p>Next go and <a href="https://register.facebook.com/r.php?referrer=102" target="_blank" title="Facebook Sign-up">set-up your account on Facebook</a>. I would recommend a profile for each member of a band with a group dedicated to the band. Each member of the band then can manage the group from their own profiles. It also gives the band more opportunities to promote the music by using the iLike application on each of their profiles. Each member will have to have an iLike account.  For single artists do just the same as a band but the group is optional. The disadvantage of not having a group is your fans don’t really have a place to connect about your and your music. If you have enough of a fan base I would.</p>

    Facebook for a Music Artist, First Start with the iLike Application

    Even though there are rumors on the “internets” that Facebook is launching a MP3 or iTunes store and maybe an artist friendly section it still doesn’t help you right now. So what does iLike have to do with Facebook? It’s one of main applications people on Facebook use to connect to each other.

    What is iLike? Best way to describe it using the text right from their website:

    Discover and share playlists, new music that matches your tastes, and concerts by your favorite artists. The iLike Sidebar* scans your music library, recommends new music, and helps you connect musically with your friends and the broader iLike community.

     I would describe iLike as a sub-social network since it relies heavily on media players like iTunes and Facebook to create the social links. Or maybe a parasite network would be a better name.

    The two main links that iLike creates is what are your friends listening too and similar artists to what you already listen too. As a music artist you would use iLike to expose your music to fans with similar likes and also share your musical tastes with your fans.

    If you’re not on iLike it’s fairly simple to sign-up and get things going. Think of iLike as another arm in your starfish of social media.

    Next go and set-up your account on Facebook. I would recommend a profile for each member of a band with a group dedicated to the band.
