Facebook will most likely launch its music service at today at the f8 conference. It will probably have something to do with Spotify. The social media company penned a deal with the music service earlier this year and Spotify CEO Daniel Ek will speak at the conference. And it looks like it will look less like a direct streaming music service and more like a platform that enhances the experience. But other than that Facebook has kept its secret service in the dark. That doesn't mean we don't have some ideas of what will make the service worth using. Things slip.
Social listening. By accident (or maybe not?) Facebook creative director Ji Lee tweeted: "The 'Listen with your friend' feature in ticker is blowing my mind. Listen to what your friends are listening." He took the tweet down within minutes, reports TechCrunch's MG Siegler, but not before former Sony Music employee Mitchell Holder snagged a screen shot of the tweet. (Lee probably knew that one of his 5,173 followers was going to do that....) Lee revealed in his tweet that you can likely see what you're friends are jamming out to and join in on the music. That could facilitate some pretty rad (or sad?) cyber dance parties.
