12. Master iTunes > Ping Your Way to New Music

Ping Your Way to New Music

Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Flickr—if there’s anything the top social-networking sites have proved, it’s that people like to share stuff with their friends. That’s where Ping, Apple’s very own social network designed to connect people who love music, comes in.

In case you had any doubt about what Ping is, it has been described as “Facebook and Twitter meet iTunes.” In fact, if you like to tweet about music, you can link your Ping and Twitter accounts together by clicking the Connect to Twitter link on your Ping home page. (While Ping was originally supposed to link with Facebook through the Facebook Connect service so you could easily update your profile with your Ping activities, a case of “unfriending” between Apple and Facebook prevented the partnership. So far, anyway.)
