If you're the type of social media user who gets creeped out by Facebook's facial recognition technology, check-ins and photo-sharing, you're going to hate the website's upcoming music service.
Rumor has it that Facebook is teaming up with digital music provider Spotify to create a never-before-seen social music experience. Of course, music has always been a social experience: something we all enjoy experiencing and sharing with others. Now, Zuckerberg and company are taking that experience online.
As Gigaom explains, Facebook seeks to capitalize on the changing shape of the music industry. To that end, the left-hand column of your homepage will now feature a Music tab. Your Music Dashboard will give you a snapshot of all your current (and past) songs on a range of music websites, (so far) including Pandora, iTunes and Spotify.
Facebook Music will share recommendations from friends. It will tell you what they're listening to. And it will tell them all about the embarrassing Miley Cyrus fest you had late last night.
Of course, the big privacy question remains: Will Facebook Music be opt-in or opt-out, like so many of Zuckerberg's other boundary-pushing projects? Only time will tell.
