Audio on Facebook? 🎙
Facebook is known as a platform for communities. Musicians of different musical genres form groups to share their latest work; Podcasters form groups to share tips and advice on producing podcasts; Langauge coaches from groups to discuss accents and pronunciations. No matter the context, audio is a key part of communities and communication. As audio content creators, posting audio on Facebook defines our voices and we believe that there we should be allowed to post audio on Facebook.
Why post audio on Facebook? 🤔
We believe that Facebook is a great platform for everyone to share and engage with the world, and audio creators shouldn't be an exception. While carousels and graphics are great to consume, a creator's voice simply adds a sense of intimacy to the content.
Since Facebook's launch in 2004, Facebook has become the single biggest social media platform in the world. Facebook now has a user base of over 2.9 billion users (Yea, almost 40% of the global population is on Facebook 🤯).
As a content creator, it is a MUST to build a presence on Facebook.
While Facebook is a great platform for content creators, it isn't very audio-friendly. There isn't a simple way to upload audio to Facebook. You can freely upload images, videos, gifs, and more. There are even cool features for Q&A, life events, check-ins, etc, but there's nothing for audio.
So where does that leave us, audio content creators?
What's the solution? 💡
In order to upload audio to Facebook, there are two options:
- Uploading your audio file to a sharing platform
- Converting your audio into a video
Uploading your audio file to a sharing platform
A simple way to upload your audio on Facebook is to upload it to a sharing platform and obtain a shareable link, which can then be posted on Facebook.
Some of the most common sharing platforms currently available are Google Drive and Dropbox. Upload your audio file to Google Drive or Dropbox, get a sharable link, and you’re all set.
Remember to change your sharing settings to "Anyone with the link can view" to enable your audience to access the audio file.
Despite being the easiest way to share audio on Facebook, it probably isn't the best way nor the most engaging way to do it ☹️
Converting your audio into a video (or as we call it, an audiogram)
In order to maximize engagement and viewership for your audio content, we highly recommend converting your audio into an audiogram. Facebook has always been a platform that favors video over text and visuals over audio. With videos muted by default, you need an eye-catching video in order for your audience to notice your content. An audiogram with a dynamic waveform, subtitles, and your profile image is far more eye-catching when compared to a link generated by Google drive.
