Music On Facebook Can Be Achieved Through A PlugIn

While music on FACEBOOK isn't quite here yet, MASHABLE's BRENNA EHRLICH tips us to a CHROME plugin that comes close to making it seamless. Writes EHRLICH, "MUSIC+ is a plugin that was developed during the ECHO NEST SOCIAL MUSIC APP CHALLENGE. It uses the music intelligence service's API [application programming interface], as well as FACEBOOK's API, to make it easy to find and listen to music while surfing the web."
If you have the CHROME browser, just install the plugin to start discovering music. You can configure a toolbar that allows you to search for music. The music you find via MUSIC+ can be shared with friends on FACEBOOK via message, or they can be posted as a playable stream on your wall.
