Right now, if Facebook's regular users upload videos that contain Universal's music, the videos will get taken down. Eventually, the FB x UMG collab will expand to also include access to UMG's library across multiple social features and music-based products, including a revamped Messenger app.

The partnership comes days after Bloombergreported that YouTube had signed a long-term agreement with Universal Music Group and Sony Music Entertainment.
In terms of UMG, the move will monetize the use of music in social media for its artists.
"This partnership is an important first step demonstrating that innovation and fair compensation for music creators are mutually reinforcing - they thrive together. We look forward to Facebook becoming a significant contributor to a healthy ecosystem' for music that will benefit artists, fans and all those who invest in bringing great music to the world".

"With this deal, Facebook has licensed content from the biggest player in the biggest genre of video on YouTube", he said.
