Still Apple and Facebook continue to pong over Ping

According to reports, Facebook CTO Bret Taylor is “very confident” about Facebook and Apple coming to a terms on integrating Apple’s social music network with Facebook’s social people network soon.

Earlier Ping was launched with Facebook Connect, so you could more easily find your friends. However, but the service was blocked by Facebook and then pulled by Apple, with rumors following the two had been going back and forth over a deal for up to 18 months and Steve Jobs complaining Facebook wanted “onerous” terms.

The positive things is that Apple has improved Ping with iTunes 10.0.1’s inclusion of a sidebar and the ability to Ping music you already owned from within iTunes, the service is still off to a rocky start.
