How to Add Music to Facebook Profile FAQs


Why can’t I add music to my Facebook profile?

If you are having issues adding a song or songs to your Facebook profile, it can be a result of one or more things.

  1. A filled Facebook cache. If the cache of your Facebook is filled up, it can cause you to have issues carrying out activities on the app smoothly. You may find it difficult to add music to your Facebook profile as a result. The solution to this is to have your cache memory cleared up through the settings of your mobile device.
  2. An out-of-date app can be another issue. If your Facebook app is out of date, you will not have a smooth user experience and adding a song may be difficult or impossible. Go to your Play Store app and have your Facebook app updated to have a better experience with the app.
  3. Your browser may be the problem as well. You may need to try another browser to confirm if the browser is the problem.
  4. If your mobile device is not in a good shape, this can affect every other thing you do especially in the online space. So, check to see if your phone needs an upgrade or if there is anything wrong with the phone.
  5. You can choose to have your Facebook app installed and re-installed again if your app keeps making it difficult to add music to your profile.


Can I use music in my videos on Facebook?

There is no regulation against making use of music in your videos on Facebook.

However, when doing so, be sure to have a visual component to the audio being played.

Do not merely share an audio sound as the sole purpose of the video. It is advisable to make a short video as the longer your video gets, the likelihood of the song in the video getting muted.




As a music lover, having the luxury of playing your music directly from your profile while making use of the Facebook platform is a big plus and a good one at that.

Just have your preferred songs added directly to your music list on your profile or have your favourite song pinned to your profile and enjoy the feel of plating your songs from your profile.

You don’t have to worry about a song you no longer wish to have in your profile. Just make use of the delete feature to have it removed.

Now, you no longer have to go through the stress of playing a song from your Music player and making use of the same device to be active on Facebook. Do the two at the same time and on the same platform.
