Google and Facebook hope to make finding music easier

Social network Facebook and search engine Google want to make is easier for users to find and stream music from their services, reports Rolling Stone.

Google is expected to reveal a “more efficient way” of finding, streaming, and learning about music. Google will reportedly link with music sites like Lala, iLike, and Imeem. A 30-second stream, or even a full track, will show up when a song is searched for, Rolling Stone continues.

Facebook is developing a way for users to send songs as gifts to online friends. Users on Facebook can currently send icons to each other. Now, after a deal with music site Lala, users will be able to send a song stream to their friends for 10 cents. For one dollar, the song can be downloaded and imported into iTunes or other music players.
