According to reports online, it looks like Facebook has plans to launch its own music service next month. Apparently a CNBC technology correspondent, Jon Fortt, mentioned that his sources have informed him “that Facebook plans to launch its long rumored music service at the f8 conference on September 22nd. Now, it seems likely that Facebook won’t actually host the music, but will partner with others to do that.”
Other than that semi-vague statement, we don’t have much information to work with, but it shouldn’t be too long until we find out, since September 22nd is only a few weeks away. Seeing how Facebook already features services like Spotify and MOG – it’ll be interesting to see which angle Facebook takes with its music service. What are your thoughts on this rumor?
