Social networking site Facebook has detailed its plans designed to encourage users to share an increasing amount of the media they enjoy with their friends.
Unveiling the new plans, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerburg explained the justification for the website's dramatic new design.
Mr Zuckerberg explained that he wanted to create "real time serendipity", wireless communication device users may be interested to learn.
He added: "Being able to click on someone's music is a great experience, but knowing you helped a friend discover something new and they liked your taste in music, and that you now have that in common is awesome."
This comes in the same week when Google dismissed claims that it fixes its search results to promote its own websites and services.
Speaking at a congressional hearing in Washington, Eric Schmidt, executive chairman of Google, explained: "May I simply say that I can assure you we're not cooking anything."
