    I have a personal Facebook page but I would like to have another one (or two?) for my musical career .

    I'm wondering if having multiple pages for each band and project is a good idea?
    Or is it better to have just your one page with all your gigs and bands.

    One of my issues is I lead a double or triple life as a 1)country and bluegrass bass player and
    2)a jazz saxophone player with
    3)piano crossing over into both.

    The jazz people don't know I do Bluegrass bass and the Country people generally don't know about the jazz.

    I'm leaning towards doing a separate page with my name for jazz oriented things and another page for Bluegrass and country projects.

    suggestions ?

    How are you using Facebook?

    Technically, Facebook allows one page per person, plus Band (or other business) pages. So if you create more personal accounts, you are at risk of having them closed on you when they are detected (or someone complains).

    I have a personal FB page with only close friends and family, plus a band page. Sometimes I'd like a page for people I don't know to follow me, but so far, I've just put ignored both people who requested friend status, that I can't place. Probably scammers anyway. :)

    So make a "Band" page for each of your split personalities. Just don't spend all night liking your own posts with them...

    I would make a separate band page. Plus, there are people who are not my "friends" who like the band page and would not hear about upcoming gigs otherwise.

    Even though it does seem a bit egotistic, I do "like" my band posts. That increases the likelihood of the post appearing in more newsfeeds.

    Here's our band page if you want to check it out.

    Separate band pages for sure. I think most of us promote both through the band page and through our personal pages. That's what that sahre function is for.

    I kick myself that I made a personal page rather than a musician page, BUT... it seems like Following a musician/band page does not keep one updated the was it used to. Can anybody confirm or deny this?
