Splash.FM, Social Network for New Music, Opens to the Public

Social music discovery platform helps users discover exciting new music to share with family, friends, and others officially launches in Public Beta.

Near the start of this year I mentioned Splash.FM, a new site that uses the power of social networking to help users discover and share good music with family, friends, and others. It was only in a Private Beta back then, but yesterday the site went live, launching in a Public Beta and becoming available to the masses.

In the most basic terms, Splash.FM is a site that allows you to follow your friends and others, browse for new music, and “Splash” the songs you love.

“Nothing beats friend-based recommendations,” the site’s co-founders, Jason Fiedler and Alex Gatof, said in a press release earlier this year. “It’s true with many categories”clothes, television shows, movies”but especially true with music,” says Fiedler, “There is something about the social nature of it; music just sounds better on Splash.FM.”

Dubbed a “Twitter for music discovery” by Billboard magazine, Splash.FM users are able to view song charts of which tracks are trending amongst their family and friends, on the site as a whole, as well as what has been “splashed” most recently.

Hear a song you like? “Splash” the track, write a comment, and then share it with family and friends on Facebook and Twitter.

Want to share a song for others to enjoy as much as you? Upload a track and “splash a song.”

“Nothing beats friend-based recommendations. It’s true with many categories”clothes, television shows, movies”but especially true with music,” says Fiedler, “There is something about the social nature of it; music just sounds better on Splash.FM.”

The founders added that we can expect a Splash.FM mobile app to be released some time within the next 2 months.

Stay tuned.

I've been interested in P2P since the early, high-flying days of Napster and KaZaA. I believe that analog copyright laws are ill-suited to the digital age, and that art and culture shouldn't be subject to the whims of international entertainment industry conglomerates. Twitter | Google Plus
