I’ve selected my Rdio “music people” because I like their (your) taste in music. I like following the adds and playlists and comments in here. But does this mean I should be friends with all my Rdio “music people” on FB? No. 9 hours ago
Nohbdy @CAW: Yeah let’s go back to when the only advertising you got was based on what they thought you Should be and didn’t really care to figure out whether that opinion was founded on anything other than their predecessors opinions….
*no longer directed at CAW* Honestly I can’t understand the whole anti-FB thing. Ok so you don’t want your info out there. They aren’t doing anything that every other company is doing and are more upfront about it. If you want to get offended then focus it on the Cell phone and cable companies that sell your info left and right with out a thought because in their view its not your info its THEIRS.
The only “personal” info that is on FB is info you put there. If you don’t want to share it do not enter it.

CAW a.k.a. The Aquatic Ape 1) Burl, I totally agree with you – those vulching demographizing d-bags at Facebook can blow me! and 2) G Marcus, me too – smack dab in the middle of where the duchie is greenest and not having to pass it?! Talk about win-win! 9 hours ago
Turdish Burl Personally, the day that Facebook becomes mandatory for rdio.com access is the day they lose me as a customer. 10 hours ago

tod nelson The real Timeline hasn’t truly launched yet. This is what it will eventually look like:
The notion that music deserves a place in your “timeline” I think is spot on. I would love a record of all the music I’ve listened to in the past, a kind of audio journal, and best of all it’s playable. If I’m going to share my photos, my posts, my relationships, and my friends, I see no reason not to share my music.
@ Ron: why do you like Spotify for playing the music you already like? Sound quality? Don’t you think it’s easier to stay on one site? I’m very interested in your answer! I’ve popped back and forth, but like the seamlessness of staying in one place…. 1 day ago
Ron Bronson I changed my profile to Timeline a few weeks ago and since then, I’ve had mixed feelings about sharing my music. The thing is, before this I was sharing music selectively on there. Less than half of my friends on FB listen to music as I do and an even smaller percentage than that are musically engaged types. Still I feel this strange need to share/educate/bore/annoy them with my tastes. With Rdio and Spotify broadcasting, it does the job that I always wanted last.fm to do, but without having them to do the work of finding it on their own.
I like rdio for finding new stuff and the social features, like spotify for playing what I already like. Not sure if one will make the other irrelevant anytime soon for me. 1 day ago
tod nelson @ DC: Yeah, I just saw Hall and Oates scroll by! Eighties Halloween Party playlist?!?! 1 day ago
David Crompton @Tod Ha! When I was putting together the playlist that contains Pass The Dutchie I did think to myself that it was just the kind of thing people were talking about when they were concerned about their listening being broadcast live on FB. And Musical Youth was just the tip of the ice-berg…keep your eyes peeled! 1 day ago
GrEtcHen @tod, maybe I’m not remembering it right, it’s been a few weeks since I logged in much, and I know you use FB a lot more than I do. Anyway, it is cool to be able to filter it to music only.
