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.
