Facebook and twitter meets iTunes
No word from Apple yet on usage statistics and the like, but the last couple of months have been tough from a press/blogsphere perspective.
As both a music geek, and a advocate for artists, I think there’s still great potential in Ping. With the right features and thinking, it could work. I would love a primarily music focused Social Network filled with artist exclusives and information, and light on dating and diet come-ons, and cat videos. But only if it has features as good, as satisfying, as what my friends and I can experience with Facebook. And only if the artists voice feels real and believable.
2011 will be a key year for Ping.
