Back in September, Apple announced their new social networking site called Ping. The concept of this site is that people would get on there and be able to discuss music with others. They could follow people to see what they were listening to, and they can also follow different artists to check out the new songs that they released. It would basically be a variation of Facebook, Twitter, and iTunes combined. You would get to meet other people, mostly based on having similar tastes in music. I think that this is a pretty good concept; however, it really did not take off right off the bat. Even in the past month or so, over a year after it was released, it still remains widely unknown about.
Obviously, there are some other main features about Ping as well other than just getting to know people. Another feature, just like in ITunes, is that you can easily buy music by going to an artists’ fan page. The people that have used Ping on unlocked iphone 4 have reported that buying music on this social networking site requires minimal to no effort. This is a really good sign for people that may want to switch over. Also, being on Ping pretty much means that you could get rid of ITunes as well. The only downside is that it does not have as many artists’ as ITunes has – yet.
Apple CEO Steve Jobs sent out an email the other day to all of his iTunes users letting people know about his social networking site. He reported that Ping already has millions of users and that it is growing fast. Many could be quite skeptical of his growing fast comment though since he had to send out this e-mail. However, this does sound like a social networking site to look into.
