hi, ive been wondering about this for a while now..
lets say you post a link to a youtube movie on facebook, then it turns into a pretty youtube player so you can watch the vid on the facebook page.

how do i do this with a soundfile(mp3) thats on my yolasite?
ive noticed that when i copy the link location and post it on facebook, it sometimes gives me a player. but more often, it doesnt. i woudl just like to post alink to the soundfile on facebook and sothat people can listen to it there.

or is this a question i should really ask facebook?

Hello Oki

That's a good question. I have searched the Facebook support pages, but I wasn't able to find any information about mp3 files.

So I suppose the only way to post mp3 files is to post a link to the file. If you have the file on your Yola website, you can post this URL on Facebook:
http://yoursite.com/resources/yourmusic.mp3
Replace everything necessary by your individual names.

This will open a page with just an mp3 player and start playing your music automatically. It won't directly link to your page, and it won't be integrated into Facebook, so it's up to you whether you want to use it. ;-)

If you need more information, try to contact Facebook support.
