Mark Zuckerberg & Sean Parker Fight Over Spotify
October 14, 2011
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg reportedly got into an alcohol induced argument with Napster co-founder Sean Parker over their new Spotify partnership.
According to Page Six, witnesses overheard Mark and Sean fighting at a West Hollywood club a few weeks ago over whether or not Spotify users should be required to set up a Facebook account.
“Sean argued that all Spotify users should not be forced to sign up for a Facebook account, but Mark wouldn’t budge. It was a full on screaming match outside the club, but stopped short at coming to blows. They then stormed off in different directions.”
A rep for Parker told Page Six the following:
“Most stories have a grain of truth. There were together at The Beverly, they did discuss Spotify and Facebook, but they did not have an argument. They have spoken several times since. Sean is looking forward to seeing Mark at a wedding this weekend.”
I will officially be able to sleep tonight.
Anyway, if you don’t know what Spotify is, it’s basically an online radio that streams your favorite music and then posts what you’re listening to on your Facebook page.
To be perfectly honest, I like the idea, but I don’t like having my musical preferences blasted on my Facebook wall for all to see. It interferes with my ability to spy on friends and family.
