Over the last week Facebook has launched a whole slew of updates to the sites layout and to the way that users interact with their profiles. One of the updates that will greatly benefit the local music scene is the integration of Spotify with Facebook.
Spotify syncs itself with the music stored on a users computer and then allows you to share playlist’s, currently playing songs, and favorite tracks directly to Facebook, Twitter, and other users. For Promoters and Management this turns Spotify into a a custom radio station that is populated with unique music.
For independent artists this creates a new avenue for music promotion and interaction, also because of its Facebook partnership Spotify is poised to have a much louder voice than other music sharing services such as Pandora and MOD.
