Apparently the “rumor” that I started yesterday has some legs to the story. According to Rafat Ali, Facebook is launching an artist platform. While I feel no need to reveal my source, the bottom line is that Facebook is entering the music market. According to Rafit, Facebook actually has an agreement with iTunes on this platform.
This is something Facebook should have launched long ago but at least they are finally going to launch it. I’m excited to hear more information about the future of this service but at least we know that they are looking to launch. Additionally, they have been looking for someone to lead this department, as I suggested yesterday.
