Facebook recently beefed up their video features, a plus for artists.  Facebook videos get around 3 billion views a day, but it used to be difficult to share those videos on other platforms.  Now, artists can easily embed Facebook videos on other platforms, and there are better analytics as well.

Now, your fans can subscribe to events located near them.

There’s also a new “Subscribed Events” area that aggregates upcoming events from subscriptions:
