What Deezer Does Well

In addition to integrating with the listen action, Deezer maps the most social aspects of their site – liking a song, sharing a playlist and commenting on songs – to Open Graph actions to make it easy for friends share the music they love.

Deezer's music activity feed shows people what their friends are listening to, what songs friends like and who recently joined to improve discovery of new music and increase sharing.
Finally, Deezer provides detailed controls that give people easy ways to manage what is shared to Facebook.
