According to Hypebot, the lack of iTunes (and Apple in general) as an official partner of Facebook will severely decrease the number of songs and albums purchased digitally. They do state that many songs have iTunes integration within them, just not from Facebook itself.

On the other side of things, Spotify’s CEO told us yesterday that Spotify users who are socially connected through Facebook are far more likely to make digital purchases of the music they are listening to.

 

Do you think the lack of official partnership is hurting the music industry as the author suggests?
