Facebook Music Service to Challenge Google’s


Hours apart from Google’s new music service announcement, Facebook has declared that they too will join the battle to overthrow iTunes. Google’s service will allow users to search for specific songs, ultimately leading them to a song page with lyrics and the ability to stream the track via Lala or iLike. Facebook, however, will make use of their bumper-sticker pushing gift store. The store currently generates millions of dollars per year by selling ten cent Facebook credits as a means of purchasing virtual odds and ends for your friends. The store will soon incorporate ten cent, streaming “web song” gifts from Lala, which will be fully downloadable and iPod ready.
