Facebook just jumped on board the digital music revolution, after Google, amazon and apple all came out with new listening platforms this year.
The biggest breakthrough feature on the new platform is the fact they they are offering “content resolution”. Techcrunch explains that no matter what program you use to listen to your music, be it MOG, spottily or Rdio, it will allow you to listen to the track, and also share it on your profile (if you desire). This will basically allow for users to sign up to just one music service, then have the ability to listen and share content on all major music sites.
Another aspect of the service will be “scrobbling”, which comes from Last.fm. If you are not familiar with this feature, it basically means that when you are listening to a song, it is sent to you profile without the user even having to click a button.
My favorite feature is the standard player, which allows uninterrupted listening as you scan/creep through all your favorite facebook profiles and pages.
