New York, NY (PRWEB) April 26, 2010
TheIndie.biz launched today its Frindie application, a social media-based tool that allows users to enhance their music listening experience by seeing what their friends on the largest social networks--Facebook, MySpace, Google, etc.,-- are listening to. With just one click of a button, users will be able to quickly view how many, and which of their friends listened to, bought, shared, or commented on a particular song.
“We’re truly excited to launch Frindie, a first-of-its-kind social music application,” said Damon Cleveland, TheIndie.biz CEO. “Unlike other systems that electronically filter and make suggestions based on what the user has individually chosen, or what strangers have chosen, Frindie shows users exactly what, and who, their friends are listening to. Frindie is basically a rich content exchange platform that works with all of the major social media networks, creating a home base for independent music lovers.”
“Frindie is a unique tool that allows both fans and bands to maximize their social networking experience,” said Harish Kamath, CTO. “Users can now more easily expand their music listening enjoyment based on more than just an inanimate system’s recommendations, they will now have a chance to quickly see what their friends like, are listening to and enjoying making the process of selecting music more organic and relatable. Simply put, Frindie is based on the concept that like-minded people–friends--tend to have like-minded tastes in music, but while information is being exchanged, users have control and privacy is never compromised.”
“Bands can also use Frindie,” elaborated Kamath. “The fact that your friend likes a song, artist or band, makes it more likely that you will like it too, allowing bands to find new fans, build more solid fan bases, and exponentially create buzz.”
Frindie allows users to not only find music by what their friends are listening to, but to also search with advanced filtering parameters and view music recommendations by categories and groupings. Registration is free for artists and fans.
