Facebook to Let Users Share Music More Freely via Stories and Profiles
Facebook today announced several new music-based features headed to the social network. First, users can now add a song to photos and videos shared through Facebook Stories. When posting photos or videos via the Facebook Camera or device camera roll, a new music sticker appears that allows users to find a song they want to add to their photo/video. The artist and song name will be visible to those who view the post. Facebook says it has also extended Lip Sync Live to more people and artists around the world, allowing creators to expand their Pages and give them more freedom to connect with fans. Lip Sync Live now includes lyrics, which are rolling out slowly for popular songs. Last, Facebook plans to let people add songs to a forthcoming music section on their profile, as well as pin a song to the top of their profile. Songs added to user profiles will showcase the artist and track, and in some cases a video of the artist when viewed by others. These new features are being deployed over the next few weeks.
