facebook spotify 257x193 Spotify integration brings music to FacebookThe Facebook f8 conference has unveiled a variety of new features, with some being launched a few weeks ago and some being launched in the very near future.

One of those features is deep Spotify integration into the new Facebook design.

The Spotify integration would enable a user to see that one of his/her friends is listening to a certain song, depending on privacy settings, and then they’d be a button to allow you to listen to that song within the confines of the site, so you’ll never have to leave Facebook again. (Just when you thought you’d try venturing outside for some fresh air…)

The new ‘ticker’ feature also allows you to watch movies and read entire articles without leaving the site.

Now, I’m an avid music fan and I’m always on the lookout for new bands to have a listen to, so I’m definitely going to be making good use of the new Spotify integration once it arrives.

Hopefully, the Spotify feature within Facebook will be free to use and won’t contain any ads before it plays a song. Or perhaps a system that checks to see whether you have a premium Spotify account will be put into place? That would be interesting to see.

What are your thoughts on all of these changes? Are you going to be embracing them or abandoning Facebook all together?
