Decoding Facebook Music

With Justin Timberlake on board as a partner, the new owners of MySpace have argued the once formidable site has the potential to once again be a hub for streaming music and music promotion.

But wait, what’s with this new code discovered over at Facebook?

Blogger Jeff Rose, a software engineer, was researching Facebook’s code so he could figure out its new video chat feature with Skype when he found some interesting code.

Rose suggested it means Facebook is “prepared to download another app … called Facebook Vibes.”

PC Magazine notes there have been rumors of a cloud-based music service for Facebook for some time, and Forbes has reported the social network has formed a partnership with Spotify.
