CNET

Facebook most’s popular music application comes from iLike, and soon the company will try to turn that social-networking cachet into song sales. Seattle-based iLike, a social music service, is expected to launched a music download store on Friday. The new store will debut as a beta version and will feature songs from at least three of the four top major recording companies. CEO Ali Partovi says, “we’re focused on music discovery: we deliver all the other things that music consumers love without risking a lawsuit or paying high royalties. Besides sampling music, people use iLike to get concert notifications, recommend new bands to friends, see video messages or tweets from their favorite artists–all of which has built iLike an audience of more than 120 million uniques per month across all our apps and widgets while maintaining very low costs.
