Facebook’s relationship with Spotify is coming under scrutiny again after an angry blog post from the developer of social music app LetsListen. He attacks Facebook’s new ‘Listen With Me’ feature, saying LetsListen’s Facebook application has had similar functionality for a while, but hasn’t been allowed to launch it. “To date, Facebook has only allowed certain companies with special insider deals to integrate with ticker feed,” he writes. “They’ve given the ‘insider’ companies an enormous and unfair head start to be the first to market with this new extremely powerful feature, and left all others out in the cold to wait… We have had this feature ready long before Spotify, but Facebook just hasn’t let us show it to anybody yet.” He goes on to make a plea to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to approve the new feature so LetsListen can “compete with the big boys”.
