Facebook to launch officially licensed music videos

Facebook to launch Officially Licensed Music Videos in the US next month

by Amelia Scott — 3 weeks ago in Business Ideas 3 min. read

Facebook is preparing to launch officially licensed music videos on its social network in the U.S. next month, in a direct challenge to YouTube.

In materials reviewed by TechCrunch, Facebook informed Page owners linked to artists they’ll need to toggle on a new setting to add their music videos to their page ahead of an August 1st deadline, at which point Facebook will automatically create a page of their videos if no action had been taken.

Artists are not going to need to manually upload their own movies or perhaps supply hyperlinks, Facebook informed the artist Page admins.

Rather, by allowing the new atmosphere, artists are providing Facebook consent to add music videos for their Page, in which they are sometimes found by enthusiasts on the Page’s Videos tab.

This library will contain the artist’s own official videos and also people they are featured , Facebook clarified in its marketing and advertising materials.

Though musicians happen to be strongly encouraged to enable the feature by August 1st, should they choose to not miss the deadline, Facebook will make another official music Page in their own behalf tagged”[Artist Name] Official Music.”

This Page is going to be generated and commanded by Facebook and will be available by fans through the Facebook Watch tab and a brand new music video destination around the stage.

In an email sent to Page owners (see below), Facebook clarified that whenever it receives a brand new launch from a music tag, the artist Facebook Page would share the video right on the webpage’s Timeline.

This permits the brand new video to reach all of the followers’ News Feeds. The setting for automatic sharing could be turned off at any given moment.

Additionally, musicians may edit the auto-generated articles, including their name, tags, description as well as the thumbnails.

Facebook’s expansion into music videos will present a significant challenge to YouTube, which accounted for 46% of the world’s music streaming outside of China as of 2017, according to a report from IFPI.

Around the same time, YouTube had claimed over 1 billion music fans came to its site to connect with music from over 2 billion artists. More recently, the company reported it had paid out over $3 billion to the music industry in 2019.

Bloomberg late last year reported that Facebook was negotiating with the three biggest record labels — Shared Media Group, Sony Music and Warner Music Group — over rights to videos. The report mentioned that record labels were considering an alternate to YouTube, they believe will not pay enough.

At present, artists beneath the important U.S. labels have yet to be able to share whole music movies on Facebook because of licensing rights; they can just publish a brief preview.

Although Facebook had previous deals with tags , the focus was on the best to use licensed audio in”societal adventures” across Facebook, Instagram, Messenger and Oculus. That meant users can post private videos using licensed music at the background with no their movies removed.

The previous agreements also allowed Facebook to examine music-driven societal adventures of its own. By way of instance, Facebook analyzed a Musical.ly competitor named Lip Sync Live and afterwards, a TikTok rival named Lasso, thanks to these deals.
