APPLE reported that in less than 48 hours since its launch on WEDNESDAY (9/1), more than one million users have joined PING, its new social network for music which lets users follow their favorite artists and friends to discover what music they’re talking about, listening to and downloading (NET NEWS 9/1).
"One-third of the people who have downloaded iTunes 10 have joined PING," said APPLE VP/Internet Services EDDY CUE. "As many more people download iTunes 10 in the coming weeks, we expect the PING community to continue growing."
PING lets you follow your favorite artists, to see what they’re up to, check out photos and videos they’ve posted, see their tour dates and read comments about other artists and albums they’re listening to. In addition, you can post your thoughts and opinions, your favorite albums and songs, the music you’ve downloaded from iTunes and the concerts you plan to attend.
