Following Google’s launch of its social network Google+, Facebook is leaving no stone unturned to maintain its commanding lead in the social networking market.

The Palo Alto California-based company is working on launching music service, new computer games and movies on its social network, thus making everything available to users at one platform. Facebook is hopeful of mimicking the success of computer games on its social network.

According to The Wall Street Journal, “Facebook has told media executives in recent days that it will begin letting online music services such as Spotify AB and Rdio Inc. publish user activity on Facebook pages, much like actions such as adding friends or “liking” websites.”

About music service:- To be kicked off on Sept. 22 during the Facebook’s developer conference, the new feature will allow user to stream unlimited music for a monthly fee.

In March this year, Warner Bros movie studio started renting movies through the social networking site. Around 30 to 40 Facebook credits are charged for watching some blockbuster movies like ‘The Dark Knight’ and ‘Yogi Bear.’

“Many of the most popular music services around the world are integrated with Facebook and we’re constantly talking to our partners about ways to improve these integrations,” Facebook said.

As the music would be sourced through third party services, users will have to login before accessing the service.
