Facebook brings Listen button to musician pages

Facebook has quietly added a dedicated Listen button to the pages for major musicians. Conveniently placed next to the Like button, the Listen button will bring up the most commonly accessed streaming music service on a user's account. In our case, it was Rdio, but Spotify and others can pop up as well.

Users will then be prompted to install the relevant app if they haven't already. The new feature is good news for the music services but should also help users discover new artists and tracks. A friend's liked artist, for example, is now much closer to a direct sample. [via The Next Web]
