The blogosphere has been filled with posts lately about Facebook, especially with their new Facebook Platform. At TechCrunch,   Mike Arrington posted about how iLike has become the most popular Facebook app, with 10,000 users in just the first 10 hours of service. joined the party late, but is gaining steam.  

At the same time, I've been hearing from my kids (3 teenagers + 1 tweenager) that Facebook was the cool place to be now, "MySpace is so old and tired".  My son who leaves soon for his first year in college has already made lots of college friends through a facebook group for freshman entering SUNY Plattsburgh. 

So it seemed,  I should learn more about Facebook. I signed up and explored a bit.  Almost instantly I got 'friend request' from Toby of MusicMobs - he was starting up a Music 2.0 Facebook group along with Jason (MuSick in the Head).  I joined the group and have been really amazed at how quickly the group has grown. A testament to all things viral.  In the past week, the Music 2.0 group has grown to over 30 members including principals and technical staff from companies like, iLike, Pandora, Goombah, MusicMobs,, GarageBand.  It is pretty neat to see all these people in one space - it is interesting for  instance to see that Tom Conrad, CTO of Pandora likes 'The Office' and has an active Last.FM music profile.

I'm not exactly sure where this group is going or what will happen with it, but there's certainly a potential that I've never seen before, with everyone (potentially) from the music 2.0 space in the same 'room'.   If you are doing things in the Music 2.0 space, feel free to join. Send me an email or leave a comment and I'll send you an invite.


Hi Paul, Thanks for the posting. Could you please send me an invite to the Music 2.0 group? Thanks

Hi Paul - Re: Tom Conrad. There's at least one scrobbler for Pandora, so I'd assume he's using that, most of the time.
