Warner Music Group is the last major label to pen a deal with Facebook

Facebook has been on a deal making spree lately. The major social media conglomerate has now inked a deal with Warner Music Group, making it the last major label to partner with Facebook.  

This new deal between Facebook and WMG will allow its users to use WMG’s catalog in their videos on Facebook, Instagram, Messenger, and Oculus. WMG will then be able to monetize this content, which will open up yet another revenue stream for artists. 

Sony Music and Universal Music Group have already signed deals with Facebook.
