This week at Facebook’s F8 developers’ conference in San Francisco they are expected to announce a media platform that will allow Facebook users to share music, television, and movies through their profile page.

Apparently, Facebook has made agreements with companies like Spotify, Rhapsody and others in which a user’s profile page can display the media they are streaming from the outside companies and the links will appear on the news feed or some tab so that users’ friends can see what content they’re listening to or watching.

The pricing and subscription costs seem unclear right now.  Some services that have a monthly subscriber fee will likely continue charging a fee but provide some sort of limited, free service.
