How to share iTunes DRM music with your Facebook friends

Facebook is a social utility that connects people with friends and others who work, study and live around them. People use Facebook to keep up with friends, upload an unlimited number of photos, share links and videos, and learn more about the people they meet.

Facebook offers an application called "Twist me!" to help Facebook fans share music with their friends. Below is the brief steps:

First, visit Facebook website and add the "Twist me!" Application to your profile.

Second, click "Twist me!" from the "Applications" list and click "Next" to import the music files from your local PC. Of course, you can also import videos and images. The supporting formats are various. Here I focus on music. You can add a maximum of 8 audio files here. What's more, you can leave a message to your friends accompanying the music files.

Third, choose your friends to send the music files to.

It is very easy to share music files with your Facebook friends. However, we always have very classic music on our iTunes accounts and are willing to share them with our Facebook friends. Here comes the headache! The music files under the iTune account are DRM protected. So how to remove the DRM from the protected iTunes music files and output them as Facebook supported unprotected music files?

The program called TuneClone I talked about in my previous post How to convert iTunes M4P to MP3 with TuneClone comes to the rescue. It can be used to batch convert DRM protected iTunes M4P music to MP3. This program automatically generates a virtual CD burner for converting the music files. Compared with using real disc, it is much faster. Moreover, this cute program can keep the information about artist, title and album intact. It is a very good application for iTunes users who have hundreds of M4P files ready to be converted and DRM removed.
