While we were surfing on facebook, we spoted some of our friends, the music lovers, listening to famous song on a website called Spotify: René is listening to « I will always love you » from Withney Houston on Spotify. Marie-France is listening to « La quiero a morir » from Shakira on Spotify... At the very beginning we were surprised but as curious people, we decided to sign up on spotify too.

Facebook owns spotify. So, it is possible to listening on your spotify's playlist through facebook. Why would it be different for you and your internet friends? The difference is that you will be a kind of spy on your friends musical's tastes: top songs of your best friends or cousin.

Music streaming is free, there are just some adverts between the songs. And if you cannot stand those adverts, with a monthly modest price, there won't be any adverts between your favorite songs. Indeed, spotify offers two different types of accounts: Premium or Unlimited, make your choice according to the way you use spotify. Olivia Regout
