What about SoundCloud? Much better than at least half of the networks mentioned :-)
grooveshark? pandora? seems like you threw this list together without doing much research :P
Groove shark isnt a social network and neither is pandora there mp3 search engines
exactly. im closing myspace which they say is the best .. yeah the best at being spammed where you cant use your email to actually converse with the million who NEVER respond .. lol but they love sending you invites to facebook, twitter or a gigs across the globe.
hands down reverb is the best, you dont get so spammed and you can use your own site with the widgets and have the reverb platform keep track for you, facebook is as good but both these site are not friend request friendly.
So I have reopened a myspace music and personal page to give it another opportunity and so far there are still no one there .. lol .. but so far the spammers arent there either so that’s a plus. It is good though for information on what the signed acts are doing.
Holy crap you're right. I don't know how I missed that one when I was Googling music social networks.
Try Callforcreativity.com Free artisan social site
Thanks for the list! Our site, hypedsound.com, will be up within the coming months. We'll be offering the standard social networking features we all use along with some unique features for both artists and listeners. We're also on Facebook, Myspace, and Twitter under the Hyped Sound name. Hopefully we'll be another great musical tool for artists and their fans.
ShareTheMusic.com does not host and/or store any music but you can listen to music for free and legally :)Now there are over 75000 songs at the service. Site is currently available in 8 languages!
definitely add tweeton.net and manymoods.com
You forgot to mention Uvumi.com, which lets you discover music from indie artists you have probably never heard of, and you can listen while you browse without interruption. Playlists are super easy to create, and the whole thing is free :)
And what about Blip.fm?
Abuzzling.com is a new social network which plans on catering to independent bands. Just getting it set up, but hopefully it will be a nice hub for independent artists.
Rock.com should definitely be on this list. It's got a music social network, free "@rock.com" email addresses along with streaming music, interviews and album reviews. Really cool site.
sharemyguitar.com is a social community for guitarists where they can share music, videos and pics. Lots of other nice features like video chat, guitar groups, forum, classifieds and more. If you or someone you know plays guitar, sharemyguitar.com is the place to network.
You should also check out Blip.fm. Has a lot of great features I think you would find useful. Phil from wedding toasting flutes
Thanks for the list, cool to see this also it would be more better (imo) if more sites offered new and upcoming artist the availibility to "sell" the music to the masses…I never really understood the free downloading deal with new music…do people really opt to buy something that they can hear for free??
Samples of songs should only be free not the entire song, but it all depends on the individual artists I guess
Good list. http://www.Gotthembeats.com is also coming up a a new network for people to sell original beats and tracks.
Even better, BuzzedAbout.com offers a social network where artists can promote themselves, sell their work, and connect with their fans and other musicians. The site's not fully launched yet, but you can preregister now and they'll let you know when it's up and running.
Check out muzicol.com…the new era of music networks!! Sell your songs, market yourself and make the profit right away…is new, is innovative and is FREE. Your fans will thank you! COMING MONDAY
There is almost 150000 unique songs on ShareTheMusic.com including the most popular artists and bands from major record companies and indies as well.
I guess the only was to determine how these sites might be valuable for promotions and sales is to just get in there and see. Some of these are probably free music sites which don't work for my group. Thin line walk these days I guess. Meaning, got get out there, people pirate, the lower level infrequent buys aren't looking to buy music on MySpace — know what I mean?
http://www.tweewoo.com is the new music social network
