Facebook music is coming!
Does this mean we can put mood music on our profiles (like we used to do on Myspace)? Can we, once again, have the bragging rights for being the first fans of that once unknown artist that has since hit it big?
If the streaming service is integrated on Facebook, music will be shared and discovered, growing our music repertoires, not to mention our cool factor. So our fingers are crossed!
GigaOm reported, this means users can click on a music dashboard where they'll see music notifications. The dashboard will have information, such as what your friends have listened to, the songs and bands they recommend, and the top songs and albums among your friends - all with cover art.
There's also supposed to be a playback/pause button that will be added to your Facebook screen (like Facebook Connect, which users currently use to chat with friends). This button will allow you to play a track after discovery right on Facebook.
Sounds like a pretty neat feature to us - but then again, if you're embarrassed by some of your music choices (like if you're listening to Hall & Oates in secret - no judgment here), be careful what you play.
