Spotify recently rolled out some of the new features it teased in New York last December with a new way to “follow” people — not in the religious or stalker senses, but in the Twitter sense of seeing what they’re up to. Spotify being a music service, that means seeing what the famous people you like and the friends you have are listening to.
Rdio, a leading competitor of Spotify’s, rolled out a similar feature at another press event, at SXSW, last year.
This started us thinking… how do these “follows” differ? If one thing you want from your music service is to broadcast your taste and check out what other people are digging, which is the best way to go: Rdio or Spotify?
