The Long Awaited Facebook Music Service
That’s correct people, in an attempt to continue to take over the Internet, Facebook has partnered up with Spotify, MOG, and Rdio to finally launch the long rumored music service. You will soon be able to listen to music without having to leave Facebook. Facebook will look toward its new partners to stream their music content over the Facebook website. It comes as no surprise that Facebook would decide to partner up with Spotify because just recently Spotify has allowed its members to connect through their Facebook profiles in order to share their music playlists with their friends. I would be shocked if we don’t see something similar to this on your Facebook profile as soon as the music service is rolled out. Look for Facebook to officially announce the launch of the music service sometime in late September.
Facebook wants to bring music onboard just like with their Facebook games; to be a platform for streaming music. (It’s another way in which Facebook can keep people on their site even longer!) Since Facebook doesn’t play any favorites, look for the music platform to be opened up to other third party developers.
Next step for Facebook would be to stream movies through their site. Who knows! It wouldn’t surprise me in the next few years if Facebook allows you to do your personal banking through their site! Again, just another step in Facebook’s plot to take over the Internet, as we know it! 😉
