Turntable.fm – nice social media website
If you like music, want to be a DJ and happen to live in the US, here is a nice social media site for you – Turntable.fm which allows users to share music interactively.
The founder of Turntable.fm is Billy Chasen and the website was launched in January 2011. Users can create “rooms”, which other can join as well. Designate users (also can be called DJ’s) are able to choose songs to be played to everyone in that room. Meanwhile, all users are able to talk with each other through a text interface, vote on how lame or awesome songs are etc. By the end of June, it had already reached 140,000 active users.
Because of copyright legal issues, the service has been adjusted according to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and is only provided in the US. When I opened the Turntable site, I saw “We are very sorry, but while we would love to let you in and rock out with us, we need to currently restrict turntable access to only the United States due to licensing constraints. We are working very hard very hard to try and get you in as soon as possible.”
It is a pity because many people see Turntable as a helpful tool which can contribute to the music industry. Imagine how it can be used to interact with fans and promote music.
