It has been rumored that Facebook would be integrating Spotify somewhere into its social network. But regardless of the Facebook’s announcement coming shortly, know this: Spotify is officially on its way to the United States.

Spotify hasn’t released many details or made a huge announcement just yet, except for the following blurb on its international website, which basically confirms what everyone has speculated about for months:

It's offical

What's Spotify and why should I care if it's in the States or not?

Who knows what you care about?

I don't know, because I don't know you. If don't care much for music then it probably isn't on your wish list. If you like an option to find music of a diversity of genres and epochs though, then you'll probably want to check out Spotify. At its current state you find new releases of not only pop/rock/r&b, but also of jazz and classical (how I hate that term) music. In the end I always buy the music I want preferably directly as flac files or order as CDs, hence download services of mp3 isn't anything I'm interested in. Nevertheless Spotify has helped me to fill gaps in my collection of quite arty music, hence you find more than the obvious.
