Facebook Music Not Helping Bands Get Fans

Nobody’s discovering new music through Facebook.

Granted, the metric for measuring this is through the rate of new likes that a band gets. That might not be the best measurement, but it’s the only measurement relevant on planet Facebook.

For discovering new music I like Rdio and Last.fm. My gut feeling is that if Facebook thinks I’ll like what my friends listen to then my recommendations would get polluted with jam bands.
