Facebook as Media Hub -

Facebook is continuously developing new ways to stay their users connected and enjoy the different applications worldwide. Facebook always try to give best to its users so now it is developing a new feature that enables us sharing our favourite music, videos, TV shows and other media. Facebook wants to become a hub for all type of media activities like accessing music and videos. For this purpose, it will launch a new feature that will combine or integrate media from outside sources to a user's profile. This will develop a tab or widget so that user can share music with each other and come to know the most played songs etc. As per media analyst, Facebook is already in talks with several online music companies to integrate their content in its new feature.

Till now Facebook has not disclosed anything and says “We’re always looking for better ways to help people discover the most relevant content on Facebook but have nothing to announce.”

With the launch of this feature, users can check what their friends are watching and listening on Netflix or Pandora just in a click through their Facebook page access. For all multimedia content Facebook will turn into the web's central hub. Facebook as a media hub will be a stupendous platform for its user to share and enjoy the music, videos and other media along with staying in touch with their friends.
