Facebook F8 Developer Conference is about bringing the whole Web into Facebook

The Facebook F8 will take place on Thursday, September 22.

Facebook is holding their annual developer conference this week in San Francisco. On Thursday Facebook is expected to unveil the rumored music service. The agenda of Facebook F8 already mentions a topic dubbed "The Future of Digital Music." There are also already several reports with leaked information on what Facebook will unveil at the Facebook F8 event.

AllThingsD unveils that the overall motto of Facebook F8 is Read. Watch. Listen. Apparently Facebook tries to bring everything that you usually consume on the web inside Facebook. I already hate it. Facebook is supposed to announce a huge package of content partnerships across news, video and music.

There are more changes to come to Facebook. CNET reports that there will be a music and film ticker that will share you activity consuming music and movies through Facebook. In addition a music player will allow you to listen and share music tracks while you are browsing Facebook.

TechCrunch reports that Facebook will unveil a bunch new buttons at the F8. These new buttons would allow better granularity of liked content. The buttons would include Read, Listened and Watched. Later a commerce related Want button is supposed to join the button madness. The Listened and Watched buttons fit to the Facebook Music and Film Ticker mentioned by CNET.

TechCrunch also reports that Project Spartan, the HTML5 app platform is not going to be announced. On the other hand their is an HTML5 related topic listed on the official F8 agenda.
