Cape Town - Facebook is planning to integrate music into its social networking pages.

Reuters has reported that the social networking giant plans to work with partners Spotify, MOG, Rhapsody, Slacker, Rdio and others.

Music is reportedly one one addition being planned by Facebook, with speculation that eventually movie content may also be made available.

According to the Reuters report, "The largest music subscription service, Rhapsody, has about 800,000 paying users after nearly 10 years. The next largest in the United States is believed to be Slacker, which claims some 400,000 subscribers, while more recent start-ups like MOG and Rdio are estimated to have significantly less than that."

The plans will reportedly be announced on September 22, at the facebook developer conference
