billboard facebook music cover Get Ready For ‘Facebook Music’!Basically, Facebook Music is not a service. It’s a feature that’s shared among different kinds of content and media. Any digital music service (or really any other content service) can use Facebook’s new API to integrate themselves into the platform. Not only will that allow subscribers to authenticate themselves using their Facebook login, it also gives them an option to add any song, album, radio channel or artist that they subsequently listen to on that service to appear on Facebook for others to see. And, it allows their friends to view a report of their top songs, artists, albums and channels based on their listening history. All users need to do is select the “Add to Timeline” button in the service one, and all activity will be seamlessly recorded from that point on.
