Music on Facebook facebook music drum kit ShopTab Facebook Set To Launch Its Own Music Service In September

We might be in for a kick and a shake as the largest social network, aka Facebook is set to make waves with what could be its very own Music Service. Improvements, improvements all the way and Facebook for sure is speeding up to be the most dominant force on the Web.

The reports come in from CNBC that predict the date for the launch of the Service on September 22, this is the same time when the social network will also be hosting the f8 Developers conference. The reports have been in round for quite a long time, beginning with what could have been Facebook’s partnership with leading music streaming service, Spotify.

Goodbye SMS, BlackBerry Messenger and everything else as Facebook launches its Facebook Messenger [download].

In what I consider to be the ugliest of maneuvers in social media, Facebook seems to have gone beyond all my imaginations.

We have social networks like Twitter and Facebook where loads of links are shared, countless applications requesting to access your personal information and the tragedy is they all prove to be havens for scammers and malware.
