Where to find copyright-free music for videos on Facebook
Thanks to Unica you have all the tools to grow your Facebook page, but the editorial strategy to entertain and engage fans is in your hands; and today if you don’t publish videos you miss a good opportunity. This is why uploading videos to Facebook is essential, but to do so you have to get around a problem that beginners will no doubt encounter: where can you find copyright-free music for videos on Facebook ?
Videos and music: a copyright problem
If you have decided to throw yourself into the world of videomakers to give your page a good boost and are creating your first content, no doubt you will be faced with the problem of background music: you have just created a video with such care, beautiful and engaging, but Facebook won’t accept the upload due to background music copyright infringement . In fact, there are rather strict rules regarding copyright, that is the intellectual property of an artistic content such as music, which prevent you from inserting music pieces of which you do not own the rights in your contents to upload them on social channels. This means that however many times you try to upload it, your video will be blocked by Facebook filters and will not appear on your page as you would have liked.
But on the other hand completely removing the music is not a good idea , because it would risk completely ruining the mood of the content, making it bare and incomplete. How to do it?
Copyright free music solutions for social platforms
This is a very common problem that every video creator for social media inevitably collides with sooner or later. Fortunately, where demand, there is supply: so slowly over time many different sites have been created that collect copyright-free music tracks to be used safely for their own videos on social media. One of these, probably the most famous, is called Jamendo and how it works is very similar to sites that offer free stock images, which are also very useful for posting on social media.
But Facebook, which thinks of everything, has found a further solution for its users: to overcome the problem of videos with copyrighted music and therefore unpublishable on the platform, the blue giant has decided to create a special song library and make it available to users. You heard right: there is a copyright-free music library to use for your Facebook videos. Let’s see how!
Use Facebook’s copyright-free song library
Within its post creation tools, Facebook offers a truly well-stocked song library with more than 1000 songs divided by genre and mood and over 1500 sound effects to freely add to your content video. How to use it? It’s very simple: just go to publication tools on your page and look for the Sound Collection item to access the selection, or you can click on this link: Facebook Sound collection.
What do you find inside? Really a wide choice : the genres vary from Rock to electronic, from hip-hop to Japanese and Indian music, and can be sorted by genre but also by moods in order to choose with ease the song really suited to our content. Also sound effects range a lot: from the inevitable evil laugh to the wonderful and enchanting sound effects recorded in space by NASA.
A really nice collection of instruments, which makes it easy and immediate to use music copyright-free for Facebook videos is simple and fun, Now all that remains is to see your content!
