Music is Social

     Technology is growing every day. New networking sites, new devices, software ect. Music is one of the largest growing industries and always has been. So why not make a site where you can share music with people that have the same taste in music and interests.

  Imeem is here for us all!

     Imeem is a social media service where users interact with each other by watching, posting, and sharing content of all digital media types, including blogs, photos, audio, and video. Some say Imeem is a copy cat of YouTube or Facebook, but to me it’s a mixture of them both. It may not be as popular as either one but millions of people visit the imeem website every month to discover music and build playlists to share across the world. I know people that do not have an account with Facebook but love Imeem. Imeem was used as a MySpace until it was blocked to embed music on the profiles. Imeem has a large variety of music and even have applications for your phone to listen to your playlists as you go. Watch out IPods!

     Only glitch that I would have with Imeem is you can only upload 100 songs for free. When you sign up it is free and you can share and comment on others playlists but after 100 songs they’re charging you. How fair is that? It makes the person think they are allowed to share unlimited songs and share interests with others, and then billed after so many songs. But I guess they have to make money one way or another. Since it’s not as popular as these other networking sites everything can’t be free. No one has yet to buy them out for billions of dollars, they have to survive too. If you wanted to upload more songs you are consider “VIP” when you get on the imeem plan of that allow you to upload 1,000 for $29.99 a year or upload up to 20,000 songs for $99.99. What a price difference! I wouldn’t trade my IPod or MP3 player in.
