Twitter’s New Music App Launches Friday

Twitter’s New Music App Launches Friday | Wiseband | Scoop.it

Next up on the jukebox — Twitter Music.

The microblogging service plans to launch its new, standalone music application on Friday, according to sources familiar with the matter.

 

The app suggests artists and tracks to users based on a number of personalized signals, including the Twitter accounts a user follows on the microblogging service. Users will be able to listen to clips of music from inside the app, using third-party services like iTunes, Soundcloud; they will also be able to watch music videos provided by Vevo, the music video service owned by Universal Music and Sony.

The Facebook Phone: In-App Chat, Easier Music Sharing | Evolver.fm

The Facebook Phone: In-App Chat, Easier Music Sharing | Evolver.fm | Wiseband | Scoop.it

Mark Zuckerberg announced in a livestreamed event today that the HTC First ($100, AT&T) will be the first in a series of Facebook Home phones starting April 12, from partners including AT&T, Alcatel, EE, HTC, HTC, Huawei, Orange, Samsung, OneTouch, Lenovo, Qualcomm, Sony, and ZTE. In other words, it will be a lot of phones, rather than just one. Not only that, but owners of the above Androids can install Facebook Home without buying a new phone....

 

From a music perspective, the big deal here looks to be the removal of friction between listening to something and sharing it with someone, because Facebook will be the main place where you “hang out” on that phone. You’ll be able to see what everyone else is listening to right there, as well as, we assume (as we must before we get a look at this thing) sharing songs in the chats that pop up within apps. At the very least, though, you’ll be able to notice that someone is listening to something, and go check out the song yourself, more seamlessly than on other phone platforms.

5 Aspects Of The Old Music Industry Being Disrupted And Replaced By Social Media - hypebot

5 Aspects Of The Old Music Industry Being Disrupted And Replaced By Social Media - hypebot | Wiseband | Scoop.it

In a widely noted Billboard interview, Amanda Palmer stated that "Twitter has replaced Google and [music] management." Nobody cared about the Google part but her claim of replacing music management certainly raised a few eyebrows. Of course, like many such claims, it wasn't totally true but it did provide an interesting example of the disruptive power of social media to replace expensive professional roles with cheap, good enough solutions.

You never notice how much social media affects this industry until you read an article like this. I never took into account the amount of jobs that are essentially becoming obsolete because it can just be replaced by social media.
