Following rumors that Facebook will be integrating music streaming service Spotify into its application, Universal Music Group which signed a deal with Spotify earlier this month, registered the domain name UMGFacebook.com on June 21, 2011, two days after GigaOM’s story first broke.
Although nothing has been officially confirmed by Spotify or Facebook, Universal Music Group appears to be the first of the major record companies to hint at the imminent plans.
