Facebook Music Plans include competing with Apple's iTunes Ping?

Jun 20 2011, 6:59am CDT | by , in Rumors | Technology News

A new report unveils a broad attack of Facebook on making music services social.

Facebook Music Plans include competing with Apple's iTunes Ping?
 
 

We heard the rumors about Spotify becoming a partner to deliver music over the Facebook platform. GigaOm posted a report that unveils a much broader approach of Facebook to the music and media segment.

According to GigaOm Facebook plans to work with other music services as well besides Spotfiy. It might even include iTunes. Facebook would give music fans a new tab on their Facebook account that shows the music their network of friends is listening to. The Facebook Music Dashboard would offer you several features to manage share and explore music with your friends. 

If and how Facebook Music features will also work with iTunes is unclear. Apple's Ping social service never really took off. Facebook with its huge user base and existing social graphs has a much better chance to make this take off fast. The question is if Apple is letting this happen on their turf.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
