In addition to features such as the "News Feed," individual user walls and the ability to upload photos and video to your personal profile, Facebook has a private messaging system, with some features similar to traditional e-mail. If you need to send a file to someone using Facebook, attach it to your Facebook private message just as you would if you were sending an e-mail.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Sign on to Facebook. Click the "Messages" icon, which is located on the left side of the site's top navigation bar and denoted by two "speech bubble" icons. Click "Send a New Message."

  2. 2

    Enter the name of the person to whom you want to send the file, then a message explaining the contents of the file. Click the "Paperclip" icon in the lower, right corner of the message window.

  3. 3

    Browse your hard drive for the MP3 file you want to send, then click "Open." Click the "Send" button to send your message and the file.

Tips and warnings

  • Post an MP3 to your entire network -- rather than sending it to a specific person -- by clicking the "Link" button when you make a status update, pasting the URL link to a file into the box and clicking "Attach." Note that this option only works for files already uploaded to the Internet.
  • Don't send copyrighted files via Facebook messages. In addition to being a violation of Facebook's rules, doing so could get you into legal trouble.
