Free Music on Facebook: How Can It Fail?


Facebook will launch a music service later this month, we reported last week. Facebook is partnering with top music services Spotify,MOG and Rdio to let users stream music on Facebook.com.

For the uninitiated: Spotify is a service that lets you listen to virtually any song for free on your desktop, with an occasional (but infrequent) ad. Users can pay a small fee to remove the ads or use the service on their phones.

That’s right — Facebook may be about to unleash unlimited free music to all its users.

Providing free music to more than 750 million people (assuming Facebook Music launches globally) seems like a no-brainer: Why wouldn’t everyone in the world want to listen to and share free music with friends? This is the web equivalent of giving away free ice cream.
