    Default Facebook pages: Tacky?

    Here's something that's been bothering me for a while: Is having a Facebook fanpage for yourself really, really tacky or no?

    I feel like people would just roll their eyes at it. I'm just curious what you guys think.

    I feel like facebook fan pages are just another, simpler, form of a myspace page. It's a good place to post links to your mixes and tell people about your gigs. I think it's sort of the same with all forms of online presence, you need to be able to back it up with your dj skills.

    I absolutely agree with you. Plus the fact that you can actually upload tracks onto the pages now is cool (at least for your own tracks).

    I don't know. I just feel like it would mostly be a bunch of my friends. lol.

    even if it's just a bunch of your friends it still gets the word out. It is a networking site so if people become fans of your page it will recommend it to their friends too.

    Alright well I went ahead and did it anyway. Who cares if it's tacky?

    If you would consider yourself a "fan" of my music, you should consider becoming a fan of mine on Facebook so it's not just a bunch of my friends. lol.

    I really enjoy facebook for different DJ's and producers. I'm not always checking every single individual myspace everyday, and it's a great way to consolidate that from what I've found.

    And in talking with other people, it seems like the fans get to know the person a bit more when they actually update posts and such. I know it's part of why Deadmau5 is so popular, because he's constantly updating his facebook and interacting with his fanbase not only through his music.

    i actually think they are a bit tacky. i just use my personal page to invite/promote people--and its nothing thats super annoying like: HEY GUYZ THIS SAT. COME KICK IT WITH BESTLEGS AND FRIEND. KKTHANXBAI.

    usually i try to invite personally on each page and we create invite pages to do the annoying work lol. but no fan page for me, i mean, i'm not Justice or something
