The social media giant, Facebook on Thursday, October 25 revealed that it will now feature several new ways for the users to incorporate music on their profiles and stories. From now, the users will not be able to add music by tapping the 'music' sticker and selecting the song of their choice. One can select a specific section from a song if that's what they want or one can let it play until the story ends. 

The feature works similarly like the Instagram stories. Another feature is that Facebook will let one play songs on their profiles. Further, the user can also pin one of them to the top of their profile to show users what kinds of mood they are in. Reportedly, the visitors who open the music section can also listen to short clips of any of the songs, as well as visit the artist's page.

Earlier, accounts of 50 million users were compromised in a massive global security breach, users are livid, worried and plain confused. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg stated that it was a “technical vulnerability” may have been exploited.  This technical vulnerability affected the ‘View As’ feature on the Facebook Timeline that lets people see what their own profile looks like to others. This corruption of the ‘View As’ feature made it possible for the attacker to remain logged into a profile giving them full access to photos, messages, linked data and any other content the users connected to Facebook.  

Interestingly, on 22 March, 2018 in the midst of the mysterious Cambridge Analytica Scandal, Mark Zuckerberg shared a 3 point agenda to secure the platform. And it seems, now is a time for a subtle reminder to the Facebook founder on what he had promised back then “I started Facebook, and at the end of the day I'm responsible for what happens on our platform. I'm serious about doing what it takes to protect our community.”
