iTunes also lands on Facebook with a dedicated page accessible by all users of the social network, ready to become fans. The page mainly focused on the US market, offering users the opportunity to get 20 free songs if you become a fan of the page and install the Free on iTunes application on Facebook.
The very complete page: the news feed is often updated with the latest news, a video section with the latest trailers available, "tips" and tricks, images and events are inserted. You can then search for the songs through a special box and then buy them, or share the song or the artist with friends.
Those who sign up also have 20 tracks as a gift from independent labels. To get the gift you must have a US account.
In addition to the United States, Apple has prepared a page dedicated also to Canada and the United Kingdom; these are three countries where the English language is spoken (mainly) from which Apple's commercial initiatives usually start. There is therefore hope that sooner or later an Italian page will also arrive.
The presence of these pages on Facebook is perhaps the beginning of an important turning point by Apple. In fact, Cupertino has historically always been quite refractory in integrating or even connecting its products to external services.
With the arrival of iTunes 9 and its ability to share songs on Facebook, and with the presence now also highlighted by the pages on the blue social network Facebook, Apple shows that it is seriously interested in the contribution of social networking services.
Let's not forget that iTunes is also the most important online music store in the world: its presence on Facebook and Twitter can only intensify the spread of its service even more. It is probably only technical tests: for now Apple products cannot be defined as truly integrated with Facebook or Twitter: the sharing options are fairly mild and not very efficient. .
