Last week, Apple launched iTunes 10 and a new social network for music called Ping. Having surpassed 1 million users in two days, Ping is becoming known as a potential “Myspace killer.”
Ping allows you to follow your favorite artists, bands, music icons, and friends. You can instantly share your thoughts on albums, songs, and concerts you’ll be attending.
Here’s a list compiled of the most active bands and users we’re following (so far):
RICK RUBIN – Follow
YEASAYER – Follow
THE NEW PORNOGRAPHERS – Follow
DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE – Follow
NINE INCH NAILS – Follow
MUSE – Follow
SOUNDGARDEN – Follow
PEARL JAM – Follow
Where’s The National, Arcade Fire, Wavves, and a huge slew of other bands? Well, bands need to be invited by Apple in order to sign up for a profile. This means that, as of now, your band can’t register on Ping either.
(In other words, Ping is a little bit boring at the moment.)
