Facebook to start streaming officially licensed music videos

It seems like it has been a while since the Facebook platform has been able to get anything new out there that is worth mentioning, but this is great news. Facebook will start streaming officially licensed music videos on its platform starting next month, something that will now reach only the United States.

There is a lot that can happen with this in terms of how it can help people get their work out there. Facebook stated that any pages linked to artists are going to be able to enable this setting on August first in order for the network to start adding their videos.

One of the greatest things about this is that by enabling the new settings, artists won’t have to manually upload their videos, but will give Facebook permission to add their music videos to their page.

What makes this so good is that artists give Facebook permission to share information about likes, actions, comments, visits, and other participation data associated with these automatically generated posts. This is great for general PR and it leads to outstanding content.

With that said, artists will be able to edit or delete their videos, as well as the title, description and tags at any time once enabled and this is going to be very important because it gives them a sense of control.

The platform has also explained that it will include both the artists’ officers and those on which they appear in the Videos tab of the artist’s page.

In case any artists choose not to enable the configuration before August first, Facebook will have a separate page that will be created and controlled by the platform. Users will be able to access this page through the Facebook Watch tab and a new music video section on the social network.
