San Francisco: The world's largest social network has officially denied reports that it is planning a Spotify competitor.

Facebook is indeed examining a myriad ways in which it can offer an even more compelling service and therefore keep its growing user base on its network for the longest amount of time possible.

It has split its services into individual apps, and is currently looking to offer news and video services, particularly around music.
