I was recently re-introduced to Last.fm
, the "social music revolution". It is a website which collects your music listening habits and collates them in to tables. The information is then used to compare you with other users and you can find cyber-friends who appreciate the same music. It automatically takes the songs you listen to on your iPod/iTunes and publishes the details online.
It weaves together music listening proclivities with live music events, personalise recommendations, internet radio and, of course, targeted advertising. It's a highly addictive mix, and unlike other social-networking
sites, it works well and with some panache. See my profile
to get the gist.
