Musical Artists’ Facebook Pages Prompting Users To ‘Listen Using MySpace’

Facebook introduced its listen button for musical artists’ pages last April, and last September, former social network juggernaut MySpace announced the ability for its users to sign in using Facebook or Twitter. Now, it appears that those two features are intertwined for some users, as Blink Account Manager Hagar Refael spotted the option to “listen using MySpace” when hovering over the listen button on the Facebook page for musician Steve Aoki.

When we performed the same action on Aoki’s Facebook page, the option that came up when hovering over the listen button was, “listen using Spotify.”

Readers: Have you spotted any listen buttons on artists’ Facebook pages giving users the option of listening via MySpace?
