Facebook adds "Listen" button to band and artist fan pages.
Posted on April 20th 2012
On the 17th April 2012, Facebook added a “Listen” button to its artist and band pages that gives fans an easy way to listen to their favourite songs directly on Facebook itself.
From writing this, fans can listen to songs from artists such as Linkin Park, Lady Gaga andJessie J to name a few, directly on Facebook via various music services like Spotify, MOGand Deezer. The “Listen” button is available on most artists’ pages. Check out your favourite bands fan pages!
The “Listen” button is located in between the “Like” and “Message” buttons on the artist’s page and will connect the user to the music service that they use most often. The very first time you click on the “Listen” button, a notice from the resulting participating service will pop up and ask you to grant access. If you will to listen to music you will have to accept this access.
All your listening activity will be published to your page in real-time since the music service apps are connected with the Facebook Timeline.
Will you be using Facebook to listen to your favourite artists? Do you think Facebook will be introducing more music orientated tools onto their social media network in the future? Let us know your thoughts.
