Guetta's Facebook presence is a vital place online for connecting with fans, and with MXP4 we can now offer an innovative music experience alongside this. It's a first step in bringing interactive apps to Guetta's highly engaged Facebook userbase, and we look forward to continuing to innovate with MXP4 in this space."
