Facebook to Release Music Streaming Service with Spotify, Rdio, MOG
September 1, 2011 10:41 AM
The new service will be revealed at Facebook's F8 Developers Conference, which will be held on September 22, 2011
Facebook has already achieved firm standings in the areas of social networking,
, and now, it's going to try its hand at music.
Facebook has announced that it will release a music streaming service at its
F8 Developers Conference
, which will be held on September 22, 2011.
The new service will utilize third-party services instead of being developed in-house. Many news reports say that
, which is a Swedish DRM-based music streaming service that recently hit the U.S., will likely be one of the third-parties involved, but won't be the only music service included in the venture.
Last week, MOG's Founder and CEO David Hyman dropped some heavy hints to
that MOG, a paid subscription online music service, will likely be apart of Facebook's music streaming service as well. It even recently developed a HTML5-based player that could easily fit right into Facebook.
"MOG already has a strong relationship with Facebook," said Hyman. "It uses Facebook's social graph to help subscribers discover new artists based on those their friends already 'like' on Facebook."
no other service has this sort of admission to Facebook's social graph.
, an ad-free music subscription service, is to be apart of the Facebook streaming service as well.
It is expected that the combined players from Spotify, MOG, and Rdio along with a music feature based on what your friends "like" will make up the Facebook streaming service.
