Facebook Said to Let Users Put Music Services on Home Pages

Aug. 31 (Bloomberg) -- Facebook Inc. will let users incorporate online music services including Spotify Ltd. and Rdio Inc. on their home pages, said people with knowledge of the plans.

Facebook will announce the music feature at its Sept. 22 developers conference in San Francisco, said three people, who requested anonymity because the plans aren’t public. MOG Inc. will also be included, CNBC reported earlier.

Facebook, the largest social-networking company, is adding movies and music to strengthen ties to users, while the online music companies gain a potential audience of 750 million. Time Warner Inc.’s Warner Bros. has begun renting movies including “The Dark Knight” on the website. Pandora Inc., Spotify and Rdio already offer Facebook features on their sites.

“Many of the most popular music services around the world are integrated with Facebook and we’re constantly talking to our partners about ways to improve these integrations,” Jonathan Thaw, a spokesman for Mountain View, California-based Facebook, said in an e-mail.
