Try it! Just go to your favorite show on BlogTalkRadio, click on an episode and leave a comment for the host.  Check the box that says “Post to Facebook” and just like that, you’re opening up the conversation to all of your friends on Facebook.

We’re really excited about this new update because it increases the interactivity between our hosts and their listeners and also gives our listeners the ability to promote their favorite hosts to their Facebook network.  We hope all of our hosts will encourage their listeners to use this new feature to help spread the word and give their content an extra boost to be heard across the Internet!

How to Create a Facebook Page

One of the best features about being a host on BlogTalkRadio is that you can instantly share your content on Facebook and Twitter with the click of a button.

A Facebook Page is a great way to reach more listeners and let your fans keep up to date with your newest broadcasts. It just takes a few minutes to create your own Facebook Page and here’s how you do it.

You need to have a Facebook account to start a Page so sign up if you don’t have one already. Then, go here to create a page and follow the prompts. You can select “Radio Station” in the Entertainment category or choose from the other categories if those fit your purpose better.

Step 1: Upload an image to represent your show. You can leverage your profile image from your BlogTalkRadio page.

Step 2: On the next page, uncheck the options to share and like this page. This will allow you to make any changes before launching your page to the world. Once your page is all set up, you can go back and change these options.

Step 3: Provide a link to your show page, and use what you’ve written for your profile page to give a description of your show.

Congrats! Your page is now set up.  Check out some of the ideas in Get Started, which is the next page that you are taken to. You can start adding content, promoting your page, and lots more!

If you have question, see Facebook’s Page help section, and ask for advice on our Get Satisfaction page.  And you can also read up on these Facebook tips from a post we did before.  Good luck with your new Facebook Page!
