Because I am an admin for the pages of various bands, I received an email from Facebook about official music videos coming to the platform. It asked you to click a button in your Settings to allow your official music videos to be automatically added to your page. Why this is interesting...
1 - Apparently this means that Facebook has finally reached an agreement with the major labels. Hopefully this means I will no longer be accused of copyright infringement when I post the band's music to the band's official page.
2 - This is a big step in Facebook's attempt to take down YouTube.
3 - The email contained a subtle threat. "If you don't add your music videos to your Page by August 1, your fans will instead be able to find them on a new Page, created by Facebook for your official music." Translation - If you decline, we will create our own page featuring your videos that you will have no control over and that we can use to compete against you.
The house always wins.
