7digital and Bebo have announced an
exclusive partnership which will allow 31 million Bebo users to
download music direct from the site. In a direct challenge to the
already struggling high street music stores, over 450,000 registered Bebo Bands
can now sell their music via Bebo and will be eligible for a position
in the charts.
Integrating 7digital’s indiestore service into Bebo
Bands will allow the popular social network to offer the service to
users in the UK, US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Ireland.
7digital has also developed a widget which will promote the sales of
downloads direct from artist’s user pages and via SMS. www.bebo.com
