Listening to music and singing along together with your friends can be a wonderful and memorable experience but you can only do that when you are physically together. But here’s some good news. The whole experience is about to change because even from home, you can now listen to music, new and old, with your friends, on Facebook.

Go to Facebook MusicWhen you have logged in, head over to the Facebook Music page (http://www.facebook.com/music) and you will see a list of trending albums with music tracks powered by Myspace and Saavn. There’s also Spotify and Rdio but currently the use of these two are only supported in a few countries.
2. Add application to FacebookWhen you are in the Music page, pick any music you’d like to play and a pop-up window will ask you to add the service to Facebook. Simply click on the “Add to Facebook” button.
