How Many Facebook Credits Is Your Song Worth?
Interesting question aside: what currency will become thé currency for music online?
On July 1st, Facebook is introducing its Facebook Credits virtual currency. First, the company will make it the main payment system for all apps, taking a 30 percent cut of transactions. Soon thereafter, Facebook could also use this payment system as the preferred system for buying goods, concert tickets, or songs.
It’s one of those situations where if Facebook does decide to make it so users can buy digital music using Facebook Credits, artists will have to make their songs available in that fashion. This could also mean that once a song app goes viral in Facebook and everyone is playing an artist’s music, each fan is now just one click away from buying the song or album if Facebook has their information.
