San Francisco - Facebook is poised to pipe tunes into the world's largest online social network in an alliance with streaming music services Rdio, MOG, and Spotify, technology blog Mashable said on Wednesday.

People will be able to listen to music at Facebook.com, which will serve as a media platform and leave the actual streaming of songs to partners, Mashable reported, citing unnamed sources familiar with the alliance.

"There's nothing new to announce," a Facebook spokesperson said in an email response to an AFP inquiry.

"Many of the most popular music services around the world are integrated with Facebook and we're constantly talking to our partners about ways to improve these integrations," the spokesman added.

Plans for Facebook to become a platform for music and other media were expected to be announced at the social network's annual f8 conference for developers in late September.
