Facebook to add music portal?

Posted October 8th, 2007 by Eric Greenwood · No Comments

Uh-oh. All those Facebook proponents who snootily claim its superiority to Myspace are poised to eat some crow, if NME gossip is to be believed. The rumor is that Facebook is preparing to launch a music platform to compete directly with Myspace’s ubiquitous artist pages. The portal will also integrate with Apple’s iTunes, allowing band’s easy digital distribution that carries with it an element of esteem a Myspace account does not. Facebook loyalists will be faced with the inherent “spamming” that comes with bazillions of bands looking to pad their friend counts, which is the likely impetus for the mass exodus from Myspace over to Facebook in the first place.
