Warning: Timeline Is Now Destroying Your Facebook App…

We saw marked declines heading into Facebook’s official switch to Timeline. But it now looks like Timeline is eviscerating the Facebook artist app, or at best forcing it into some lowly plateau.

Here’s a look at artist app traffic for three of the largest DIY appmakers: BandPage (formerly Root Music), ReverbNation, and FanRx (formerly BandRx).  The mandatory switch to Timeline, which disabled default landing pages on artist apps, happened March 30th.
