Music in your face

At a meeting I found myself in last week, a wise man observed that the last thing Facebook users need now is another bunch of widgets to pull onto their already overcrowded homepages, which may mean it's totally the wrong time for Facebook to try and take on MySpace by introducing a way for bands to create artist's face pages with all the extra paraphernalia that'll involve.

Interestingly:

Facebook has been making the rounds of music labels trying to get this service off the ground.

Oh, right. Here comes the brave new future of the music industry... so let's go and talk to the beached whales of the old labels about getting them on board first.
