It was a tragic day for music fans all over when the news broke that Prince had died at age 57. For years, the "Purple Rain" singer had inspired and captured the ears (and hearts) of so many around the world, so losing him and his talent is something the music industry will certainly mourn. Because his death was sudden and heartbreaking, you may be wondering how you can share your fandom with your friends on social media, specifically Facebook. Well, you can pay tribute to Prince on Facebook in many ways, all of which express and honor what a musical genius he really was.
Social media has become a very dependable way to express how you feel. In this particular situation, you may feel sad — for obvious reasons — but you may also feel the need to celebrate.
