Facebook have unveiled an exciting new feature, which enables users of the Facebook iPhone app to share music from the leading streaming sites, such as Spotify and Apple Music in a new post format.
A Music Story appears as interactive content in your news feed and timelines. It’s not labeled as such but will allow users to listen to a 30 second preview of shared songs or albums from these services. As well as this new feature, with a simple click you can also purchase the track from iTunes, or open the platforms to stream in full and add to your library!
If someone has shared several music stories, you’ll be able to horizontally scroll through the previews in your news feed.
This is a great way of getting your tracks shared amongst your social connections, increase your streaming figures and push people to purchase your music!
Give it a try and let us know how you get on.
