On September 22, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced sixteen music partners ranging from almost-unheard-of to the incredibly popular.Of those, seven have completed their integration with Facebook, meaning that they can automatically send users’ listening activity to their friends’ Facebook tickers and Music sections, and to their own Facebook Timelines.

Here’s the full list in both categories, which we confirmed with Facebook spokeswoman Malorie Lucich today, with links to explainers on Evolver.fm:
