Better ways to distribute

Yes, it is facebook again. Rumors …

AllFacebook is running a rumor that Facebook is launching an iTunes competitor within their company. According to the report, Facebook has been searching for a CEO to head up a new MP3 sales subdivision and has been pursuing agreements with a number of record labels. If true, it would be an interesting move by Facebook. Apple itself sees value in social networking as a platform for music sales, having integrated iTunes into Bebo UK and Ireland in June.

What we’ve seen in the music industry – the raise of powerful new global players with roots in totally different markets – and what we still see evolving will most certainly happen in other industries as well …

Without knowing exactly what Facebook might be offering it’s far too early to pass judgment on any Facebook Music store, but with any luck we might see low cost or even free MP3’s on offer. Better still the music might all be offered DRM free.

Wishful thinking perhaps, but it never hurts to dream …
