More often than not music is enough to express whatever it is we’re feeling in just about every situation. Following Instagram’s lead, Facebook has now added a music sharing feature where you can add music to your profile and even share it on your stories.

You can add multiple songs and even pin your favourite one on your profile to make sure everyone who accesses your page sees the music you want them to see. 

At the time of writing, the feature is currently limited to the Android and iOS apps of Facebook and isn’t available on the desktop site. It is located right next to the life events and photos card on your profile.
