Stay Part of Rock and Blues Muse Community!

Dear Fans of Rock and Blues Muse,

Because of Facebook’s major changes to business pages, you will not be seeing our concert and album reviews, artist interviews, new video/single premieres, Rock Muse, new artist features, playlists and more, on Facebook like you used to.

Why?

Because Facebook is dramatically reducing exposure for business pages like ours. Their focus is now more on personal pages and friends and family. Which is great, except it’s bad news for Rock and Blues Muse followers. You probably have noticed changes already. I know we have.

What are we going to do about it?

We appreciate all of you so much, your conversations with each other, and with us, your interactions with our music posts. We love Blues, Blues-rock, Rock, Southern Rock, Roots Music, and guitar players, as much as you do. We love real music with real musicians just like you do. We value your contributions to our site and appreciate you as part of our music community. We’ve come up with a few ideas.

    I don’t think it’s right for our group to be in that category with Facebook & be impacted by these changes in web site policy. You’te not selling concert tickets, you’re not promoting actual purchase of albums, etc. We all promote & share our favorites with each other on a fan-base level not a business level. We are a family – of the coolest people who understand the true meaning of music & talent – and the Blues, Southern Rock, etc need groups like this to expose others to the great talent of so many bands that deserve Grammy attention and airplay but don’t receive it. I’ve had the best week discovering artists via members’ posts and well, I see use as a family of music lovers not a business group. And losing those features on the group page doesn’t leave us with much. ?✌???

      Sheila,
      Thanks for your comment. It’s our Rock and Blues Muse Facebook page that is the issue, along with other Facebook pages. Facebook has changed their policies and are now focusing on more personal interaction between close friends and families, which is great, but they are restricting visibility for posts from business pages.
      We do have advertising on our site and do offer some purchasing of albums and singles through our reviews. But I do agree with you that we are a family of fans of Blues, Blues-rock, Southern Rock, Roots Music. We are a family of music lovers for sure.
      I’m so glad you have enjoyed the music we’ve featured and are discovering music you love through Rock and Blues Muse and other members. That makes our day!

    P.S. Restricting or shutting down groups like your’s forces fans to turn to YouTube Red & Google Music, et. al. to discover and listen to music which of course comes at a subscription price(!) vs open sharing in group. Facebook must recognize how you’ve protected copyright issues and sharing for profit by strict member policy that we agree to when we join.
    I talk with my family every day. I don’t need Facebook for that. I need Facebook for finding communities and Groups of like-minded strangers that become friends from sharing mutual interests!
    To borrow from Warren Haynes of Gov’t Mule… In the Deep Muddy… “sooner or later it all comes down to money”. ?
