Starting today Spotify is going social. It’s creating a true social network inside the Spotify service by integrating Facebook connect features.
Spotify users will now be able to connect to their Facebook page and import friends from their profile who are also registered as Spotify users. Connected friends will become visible in the Spotify browser.
It will also synchronise your existing music collection with your Spotify account. Users will also have an inbox to which tracks can be dragged and dropped for recommendation. Songs appear in the inbox and can then be clicked and streamed by the user whose inbox they have been dropped to. The quick link sharing, drag and drop inbox is faster and simpler than the previous sharing options via URL link. A band could for example announce a new playlist of tracks from their Facebook page and fans can immediately subscribe to that playlist and spread news of the playlist. The new library feature is very good as well because now Spotify becomes a music management platform, in the way you can put all of your music in one place.
That’s a lot of new features Spotify, thank you!
