A social itune?

Fabien just sent me this tool that seems highly interesting: MyStrands, a kind-of 'social itune':

  • Explore Recommended Songs: Songs are recommended based on the song that is actively playing and recently played songs. You may read about a song and in most cases listen to a clip by clicking the arrow which will take you to the songs homepage at the MusicStrands website.
  • Explore Recommended Tags: Tags of interests are recommended realtime based on recently played songs. You may explore music related to the tag by clicking on the tag of interest.
  • Publish Playlists: You may tag and publish your active playlist by clicking the edit button next to your playlist tags. When you tag a playlist, the playlist is uploaded to the website and published.
  • Tag songs: You may add/edit tags for your active song clicking the edit button. When you add a tag, the tag is also added to the MusicStrands community for others to explore.

Why do I blog this? I am interested in social sharing phenomenon like this, besides I find it could be a powerful way to discover new something. I believe a lot in social navigation recommender systems like this.
