Myspace reborn! Facebook will let you pin song clips to your profile


Facebook will let friends learn about you by streaming clips of your favorite songs from your profile in a throwback to MySpace Music. You’ll be able to choose tracks to add to a revamped Music section of your profile that now actually plays songs instead of just showing what artists you Like, and you can pin your favorites right to the top of your profile. While friends won’t be able to listen to the whole song to see how you express yourself, Facebook could eventually strike streaming partnership with companies like Spotify or Apple Music to allow that.

The new Music section of the profile comes alongside the rollout of two previously tested features that all build off of Facebook’s recently acquired music licenses from major record labels.

Lip Sync Live

Facebook’s Lip Sync Live feature has now rolled out to all users in many countries, and today opens to Pages to let artists perform for and connect with fans. Lip Sync Live lets you broadcast a video stream of you singing or dancing to a popular song you’ve chosen. And to make singing easier, Facebook is starting to add lyrics to Lip Sync Live starting with hits like Dua Lupa’s “New Rules,” Khalid’s “Better,” and “Girls Like You” by Maroon 5.

Facebook Music For Stories And Feed

Facebook is finally rolling out its soundtracking feature for Stories. This lets you pick from a catalog of songs, choose the section you want, and overlay it on a Story. You can also share these clips to your News Feed.
