More after the break

Last month, Facebook advertised for a Legal Director of Music Licensing. It also recently hired Tamara Hrivnak - an executive who has spent time at YouTube and Warner Music Group - as its head of global music strategy.

Facebook hasn't announced its music plans yet. But with all these hires it looks to be cooking up something, and all signs point to a streaming service to rival the likes of Spotify and Apple Music.

Facebook is also getting into TV. It's in talks with media companies to produce 'TV-like' shows up to 10 minutes in length.
