I included this under the heading DJ Marketing since we've talked about social media being used as a marketing tool. Has anyone had issues with videos actually showing up that you've up uploaded to FB. I uploaded two (one was about 3.5 min in length and another super short 15 second ad). That was yesterday afternoon. Still not showing up. All I got originally was a message after I uploaded was that I'd "be notified when they're done processing".

I've never had an issue uploading .. I had one taken down due to copyright (though it was eventually restored when I protested about fair use).

Nah, not a copyright issue. I arranged and composed the music myself via a DAW. The standard license with the DAW allows you to post it on social media. Just can't sell it until you upgrade the license with some more $$. I haven't had issues before either so it did seem weird. I have heard of delays of up to 24 hrs. Some folks were saying it's because FB isn't designed for video the way YouTube is and that's the reason for possible delay times in processing.

I can't speak for all services but with Xtendamix I can use the audio only on Facebook as long as it's ambient under fair use. I still get tagged from time to time but it's a one click fix..

I can't use it to promote a product or service directly

Facebook has been having problems for about a week with a lot of things culminating with the outage Sunday. It seems like it's gotten better since
