Facebook Giving Away iTunes Songs
Given the competition between MySpace & Facebook among others over the young networking & searching auidences, I found this promo to be of interest. Facebook, “the social directory that allows people to share information“, is running a back-to-school promo and will be giving away 10 million music samplers to Mac and PC users from the iTunes Music Store.
Starting today, Facebook will give away one million, 25-song music samplers from iTunes each week for the next 10 weeks. Each iTunes music sampler will feature select songs from a different genre ranging from Alternative to Rock, Hip-Hop to Dance and Electronica.
By the way, these samplers are only available via the Facebook & iTunes promotion.
“iTunes is the most popular digital music service in the world and we are excited to offer this exclusive giveaway of 10 million music samplers from iTunes,” said Owen Van Natta, chief operating officer at Facebook. “We’re always striving to provide people with the things they care most about, and with over half a million bands listed on Facebook we know that listening to and downloading music is an integral part of our users’ lives.”
“We’re thrilled to work with Facebook on this great promotion,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s vice president of iTunes. “This is a tremendous opportunity for people to legally discover and enjoy music on the iTunes Music Store through their favorite social directory.”
