It's been expected for some time, but now it looks like a new web service for Facebook users to hit the Like button on is finally near.

Facebook isn't confirming a mashable.com report that it will introduce a music service in late September.

The report says Facebook will follow the pattern it established when CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced a video-chat service partnered with Skype.

"We want to leave all of the different types of apps, or as much as possible, to independent entrepreneurs and companies who will be best in class at building those types of things."

So instead of hosting or streaming music, Facebook may let Spotify, R-Dio, and MOG provide the content.  Amazon, Apple and Google do their own hosting of music content.  The new service will reportedly be introduced at Facebook's F8 Conference.
