It took Sheeran 19 weeks to reach No. 1 with his hit single Thinking Out Loud between July 5, 2014 and November 8, 2014.  The previous record holder Celine Dion whose single Think Twice took 13 long weeks to make it to number one on the same chart.

Facebook Wants To Go Swimming

Is Facebook planning on streaming music?

FB central has denied the claim that it is and that it is not eyeing up competing with Apple and Spotify – but that doesn’t mean it’s true.  Following reports the site is in discussions with record labels, it now appears FB is instead looking to add music videos to its News Feeds.  Technically, in order to make it capable of creating a profit for FB the social media giant will need a licence similar to the one YouTube has with various labels. In fact, during a recent question and answer session FB founder Mark Zuckerberg said he believes video will soon be even more important than photos.

Reports about FB entering into the music industry began earlier month when, as reported by The Verge, multiple sources reported that FB was allegedly “getting into music.”  Is that worthy of a like?
