In its on-going quest to make the sharing of things easier, Facebook has a new way to tell others what your listening to. The new feature, or post format, is called Music Stories. Instead of posting a link to the song or album you're listening to, Music Stories offer a 30-second clip from either Apple Music or Spotify. There's an option to continue listening via the streaming service the song or album was shared from, too. And you'll have the choice of making a purchase from iTunes (for Apple Music) or saving the tracks for listening later as well. While only two streaming options are supported right now, Facebook says its looking to add more services in the future. Based on rumblings about the social network's audio aspirations, we surmise this is only the start of having more music in your News Feed. Music Stories are only available on the Facebook iPhone app starting today, and there's no word on when/if they'll arrive on Android and other versions of the software.
