Users have streamed 1.5 billion tracks on Facebook According to VB, Facebook users have already listened to 1.5 billion songs since the launch of the service's social music tools.
Introduced in late September, the giant social network gives access to streaming music services like MOG, Spotify and Rdio, allowing users to stream music and share with friends with the click of a button.

The full list of services available are Spotify, MOG, Rdio, Rhapsody, Turntable, VEVO, Slacker, Songza, TuneIn, iheartradio, Deezer, Earbits, Jelli and Mixcloud.

Many of the startups have experienced huge growth spurts since the announcement, with Spotify adding 4 million new users and MOG seeing a 246 percent explosion since September.

Facebook has 760 million members.

HOLY COW! So if you average that out its less than two songs per user, way to go! I'm quite certain I haven't even come close to listening to 1.97 tracks since September. Guess I better join facebook!

It's probably 25 million users averaging around 60 tracks, would be my guess.

Yes, I was making light of the claims in the article. With 760 million users, 1.5 billion tracks streamed doesn't sound like much be it two or sixty per user for that time period.
