Facebook Music Platform Coming in September

Facebook plans to launch a music platform during its f8 conference in San Francisco on September 22.

Instead of becoming a music retailer it may open up its social platform to third-party music services including the just-launched (and Facebook-friendly) Spotify, as well as Pandora, MOG and many others. It’s quite possible that these will appear as internal apps while the music services themselves may integrate the typical “Like” feature into their desktop or web-based clients.

What’s interesting is that Facebook plans to reveal its music service around the time Apple plans to reveal its rumored 3G-capable iPod Touch, iPhone 5 and cloud-based iPhone 4. This will also be the time when Apple will officially release iOS 5, iTunes 11 and properly launch iCloud, the latter of which includes “iTunes in the Cloud” and “iTunes Match.”

Either way, just another reason to upgrade your bandwidth.
