Facebook Tests Adding Songs To News Feed, Stories
Facebook is testing the ability for users to add a song that will appear in their News Feeds and Stories, in the latest sign that deals that Facebook cut with the major record labels and Merlin are starting to bear fruit.
"Adding music to your Stories goes beyond sharing what you're listening to — it adds context and lets you creatively express yourself. We're now starting to test music on Facebook Stories and News Feed," Maya Patterson, Facebook Stories Product Designer, said in a statement.
Here's how it will work, according to Engadget:
"upload a photo/video or take one via the Facebook Camera, tap on the sticker icon and choose the music sticker to conjure the list of songs you can choose from. After you've chosen what track to use, Facebook will load the song, giving you a way to choose which portion of the tune to use. Your friends will then see the title of the song and its artist in a sticker on your post."
