Facebook To Launch Music Service With Spotify

Facebook has partnered with Spotify on a music-streaming service that could be launched in as little as two weeks, sources close to the deal have told Forbes.

facebook will sink for sure, if it gets into the music industry.

no man facebook wont be sinking anytime soon it has the most users in the world and people addicted to the service, if facebook signed some major deals with this it could change the music industry and actually mess with itunes cause facebook constantly battles Google for the #1 rank everyday so anything is possible,
