Facebook To Help Users Burned By Profile-To-Page Migration

by Christina Warren

Facebook now offers a potential solution for users who converted their profiles into pages, only to regret the decision after the fact.
As reported by Inside Facebook, Facebook has created an appeal form for users who want to reverse course on their profile-to-page migration.

As we discussed, the Facebook profile migration tool may leave users with some unintended consequences. Facebook temporarily disabled the tool last week, reportedly because of API strain.


Musicians Get a New Daily Deals Site

by Brenna Ehrlich

We all know the cliche: Musicians are poor. They subsist on cereal and dreams. Well, indie musician platform Hello Music has decided to do something about the situation, offering users Hello Music Deals on a variety of musical products.

All one has to do to reap the benefits of these deals is register for the site, which is free to join (if you’re already a member, you can bypass this step). Among other tools that Hello Music offers, you will now find “Deals” at the top of the page.

Deals include savings on instruments, recording equipment, gear, accessories, etc. There will be up to four products featured daily, with deals lasting up to 48 hours (or until products sell out — a few of today’s already have). Discounts can climb up to 70% off.

This new service fits nicely within a growing trend when it comes to music and deals sites. RCRD LBL is primed to launch its deals service, in conjunction with TopSpin Media; Sony recently launched PopMarket, a deals site for collectors; and GroopEase, a savings site for indie, digital music, launched this week.
