Shazam, which we featured a couple of years back, has just announced the launch of an application for Facebook that will allow users to access recent songs identified via Shazam’s mobile service, and share that music with their friends.
Provided Facebook users already have a Shazam mobile account, it’s quick and easy to register and synchronise accounts, needing just name and mobile phone number.
Andrew Fisher, CEO of Shazam commented, “Social networks are fundamentally changing the way people discover, purchase and consume music. Whether they are used to share and recommend music, reflect a person’s mood or personality or communicate music tastes, it is clear that they offer tremendous value. We are thrilled to be announcing Shazam’s Facebook application and are confident it will offer our users an even richer, more engaging music experience.”
