Facebook Music service launching 22 September

Facebook Music offering set to get official after months of rumours.

Facebook will launch its much-vaunted new music service on 22 September at its f8 developer event. That’s according to US network CNBC and a host of other sources which claim to have knowledge of Zuckerberg and co’s plans.

Exact details of the service, expected to be called Facebook Vibes, remain under wraps. One insider, however, did tell Reuters that, “…They [Facebook] are working on a platform for music where the goal is to create a connective tissue for fans.”

The chatter follows talk of a Facebook and Spotify hook-up back in May, which suggested users could play tracks from the streaming service directly through the social network. Word is that US services such as Rdio and MOG will also be included, with Facebook keen to include as many different services as possible.

Expect to hear plenty more about Facebook’s music plans in the next few weeks. We’ll be bringing you all the news as it happens, so keep it locked here and to our Facebook and Twitter feeds.
