Can you imagine having access to stream and watch music videos on Facebook without ever going to YouTube first? It's
like logging on to both websites at the same time!
This concept is similar to the one that Facebook is hoping for, after speaking with Vevo, the video service that is contracted
with YouTube for an additional year. Vevo has been major competition to YouTube, offers music videos from 3 of the top 4
record companies and is a major contender in the world of music videos despite its short two year existence. This deal is
sure to have users spend more time on both Facebook and watching the videos through VeVo. I mean, c'mon who can
resist having an online cry out session with your girlfriends over the Taylor Swift tune : ‘Last December’ and rewinding it to
the same spot at the same time to capture that on high note that knocks on your heart. Or for the true Rock lovers, having a
Skype Karaoke with all your friends around the world blasting System of the Down's ‘Sugar'. This possible connection
could boost Facebook's current music program where users share listening habits and music tastes tenfold!
Google owned YouTube isn't out of the deal yet but this promises to be a major battle between the major social network
and the most used web search engine worldwide.
