Ping: “Twitter and Facebook meets iTunes.”
The craze of social networking hasn’t escaped even Apple, who has introduced a new social tool called ‘Ping’ into its iTunes music service.
Ping, described by Steve Jobs as ‘Twitter and Facebook meets iTunes”, allows users to form a virtual group of friends, within iTunes, whom you can share your likes, dislikes and recommendations with. Just like live status updates, users can alert their group of nearby concerts, new tracks and just about anything that gets their feet tapping.
The service will be available on the iPhone and iPod Touch as well. iTunes, all with its glorious new logo, is now available for download.
