Social networking Website Facebook and digital music provider Spotify are collaborating on a streaming music service, according to a report published by Forbes.
A Facebook spokesman offered no comment, but referred to Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg commenting at a G8 summit that his company wants to make the music and film industry more social.
“Many of the most popular music services around the world are integrated with Facebook and we’re constantly talking to our partners about ways to improve these integrations,” the Facebook spokesman said.
“Specific to Spotify, we consistently point to their product as one of the best examples of using Facebook to provide people with a rich social experience.”
Facebook members can already use an application to share with friends what songs they are listening to at Spotify.
The Forbes report said that Facebook is testing a service that would allow songs from Spotify’s vast library of music to be streamed to members of the social network.
Facebook is working with companies that create entertainment content to make their services more social, Zuckerberg said at a G8 forum in Paris. “I hope we can help those companies become more social.”
