Here’s a new video from social-media-for-artists expert Ariel Hyatt.

Simple stuff looking at why you need both a personal profile and a Fan Page, but worth watching for her view on having 2 personal profiles.

What she doesn’t talk about is those people who advocate using your personal profile for music promotion since you can get your messages in to people’s mail inboxes – Facebook notifications which you do from a Fan Page are universally ignored!

Obviously Facebook are not happy to see individuals using a personal profile to promote anything (music or some other business) but it is done by many solo artists and some frontmen – the limit of 5000 friends comes in to play but it can work for some people.

I’ve also just been reading their book on Twitter and Facebook – and it’s great. Thoroughly recommended.
