What social media sites can I connect to my EPK?

Facebook:

A Facebook band page is required in order to create a new band profile. For existing profiles and new profiles, you can easily incorporate your Facebook URL.

Make sure when incorporating your Facebook page that it is a Facebook band page and that you are incorporating everything after "http://www.facebook.com/." Some users report that their Facebook URL isn't accepted, which is usually because it contains capital letters or you are missing the trailing slash (e.g., /) please replace all upper case letters with lower case letters and proceed from there.

After successful Facebook integration, you will see the ability for users to "like" your band right below your profile picture. This is a great way to grow your fan base on Facebook.

Instagram:

To dynamically update your Sonicbids EPK with images from your Instagram feed, simply set up a link between your band profile and Instagram. All you need to do is click "Connect to Instagram," where you will get a new tab or pop-up to enter your Instagram credentials and approve the connection. Some users report issues with this set-up process if they have a pop-up blocker activated. Please disable your pop-up blocker when updating your band or user settings on Sonicbids.

You may want to further refine your feed from Instagram by including hashtags so only images using your tags will be pulled over.

Once you have successfully integrated Instagram, you will see your images tab populate with images from Instagram. Additionally, your feed tab will show these most recent additions displaying your hashtag over the image.

Twitter:

To dynamically update your images from your Twitter feed, simply set up a link between your band profile and Twitter. All you need to do is click "Connect to Twitter" where you will get a new tab or pop-up to enter your Twitter credentials and approve the connection. Some users report issues with this set-up process if they have a pop-up blocker activated. Please disable your pop-up blocker when updating your band or user settings at sonicbids.com

You may want to further refine your feed from Twitter by including hashtags so only images using your tags will be pulled over.

Once you have successfully integrated Twitter, you will see your images tab populate with images from Twitter. Additionally your feed tab will show these most recent additions displaying your hashtag over the image.

Spotify:

The Spotify social media connection allows bands to make sure their music tracks are the most up-to-date and allows them to get fans to find their favorite artists on the music network.

The best resource for getting these links is here on Spotify: http://news.spotify.com/us/2008/01/14/linking-to-spotify/

You will want to go to your artist page on Spotify and right-click on your artist name. There you will be able to pull the specific URL that is your Spotify artist URL.

For the playlist, you will want to create a playlist of music you want to share with both your profile and other users. Then right-click that playlist and copy its Spotify URL to use in the playlist field.

You can have either or both populated, but when successfully connected you will see your "Music" tab on Sonicbids updated with the tracks from your playlist or artist page. It will also show up in your "Feed" tab.

Rdio:

The Rdio social media connection allows bands to make sure music tracks are most up-to-date and allows them to get fans to find their favorite artists on the music network.

The best resource for getting these links is here on Rdio: http://help.rdio.com/customer/portal/articles/58991-using-rdio---social?b_id=681

You will want to go to your artist page on Rdio and right click on your artist name. There you will be able to pull the specific URL that is your Rdio artist URL.

For the playlist, you will want to create a playlist of music you want to share with both your profile and other users. Then right-click that playlist and copy its Rdio URL to use in the playlist field.

You can have either or both populated, but when successfully connected you will see your "Music" tab updated with the tracks from your playlist or artist page. It will also show up in your "Feed" tab.
