  1. I don’t want the music on Facebook and no idea how to get it off Facebook. When I hit the Facebook app all I get is music and I just want to see my regular Posts.

  2. On Facebook every time i try to pin a song it says something went wrong please try again would anyone have any idea how to fix it

  3. Hii! I just noticed that when I try to pin a song to my profile, it says “fail to update your profile song” it’s been like that for almost two months, ¿How can I fix it?

  4. This procedure doesn’t explain how to remove or add items in MUSIC under My Profile at all. When I go to Edit Profile, I scroll down to the bottom, and click “Edit Your About Info” and I scroll down to MUSIC, and I can’t get rid of some composers and artists. The subtitles for the composers are listed incorrectly. Antonio Vivaldi is subtitled as “Musician” and Mozart as “Public Figure.”

  5. I located the music icon on the search profile tab, added and pinned some music on my profile. But when I viewed my profile, there is no music icon. Where and how do I fix this?
