Jason Paul my only agenda with the Facebook thing is to do a small part to help legitimize Rdio to my small group of friends in the face of Spotify. subliminal branding and what not. Rdio investing in a huge facebook marketing initiative wouldn’t hurt 4 weeks ago
the >> shadow last fm is banned here @ work – so i never use it. fb is banned here @ work – so i can’t use it… i’m not really interested in following the activity of those i’m following other than their activity here on Rdio. what i would really like is to see what songs they’re listening to and not only what they’re adding to their collection… 4 weeks ago
GrEtcHen oh right, last.fm does have this…just really badly implemented.
Click on a song title, and you go to another page — bad — and see a link to “play this song in Rdio” …but when you click it, it just opens up the song page in Rdio, doesn’t start playing it until you press Rdio play button (kinda lame). On the other hand, now you’re in Rdio and can just add it to your queue instead — not so bad.
So why are we all trying to do this in FB again? o_0 oh wait, yeah yeah, it’s so you can see everyone’s activity all at once. Lacey and Aroon are the only ones who doen’t like that idea so far. 4 weeks ago
Ray Hewitt I can go for that…(apologies to H&O;) heh 4 weeks ago
GrEtcHen you guys are cracking me up. thank you.
lemme ask a question. If last.fm provided a link where you could play a song from someone’s scrobbles/listens, would that be exciting? 4 weeks ago
David Crompton @Japan Soul: After a long soul-search I decided Mavid Frompton just sounded weird so I went with the more biblical meets no quite East LA ‘David Crompton’ 4 weeks ago
Jason Paul when on the web one must assume a consistent pseudonymn. And thanks to G+ it has to sound like a name. Japan Soul wasn’t going to work so I settled for Jason Paul. 4 weeks ago
Biker Chick Cheap! Cheap is my middle name. Ummm, wait… that didn’t come out right. 4 weeks ago
the >> shadow @BC – I did an extensive Google Search on your Rdio username and not only did I find your real name, but i also found your date of birth, and your address. If you choose to remain anonymous, it’s going to cost you. The good news is that I can be bought fairly cheap… 😉 4 weeks ago
Biker Chick I tried doing the fake FB/ fake Google plus. Too much work. Too time consuming. Too much everything. I chucked the fake ones but not sure I want everyone to know my real identity. (we ninjas are supposed to keep that secret shhhh) 4 weeks ago
David Crompton Putting it in the ticker is going to make me just as annoying as my Aunt’s Farmville updates, I guess. Is Rdio is my Farmville? Ugh. 4 weeks ago
Aroon Maybe I don’t fully understand it, but this Rdio/Spotify integration with Facebook is total BS for me. I have something like 350 friends and I actually don’t care to receive hundreds of reports of them obsessively listening to Radiohead’s Kid A all day or whatever. I’m definitely not linking my FB account to Rdio either, because I have work colleagues on there who probably think I shouldn’t be listening to music while working, and then there are tons of other friends who I’m sure I’d be annoying. 4 weeks ago
Lacey Underall @Nohbdy– It’s a good question. I don’t really know the answer.
I’m somewhat of the opinion that “Facebook (the concept) is bad” but not so much “Facebook (the company) is bad” if that’s what you mean.
To me, it’s like those stupid “club cards.” Is it the fault of technology companies that the club cards exist, or the retailers who offer “discounts” via the card or the customers who so eagerly snap them up?
I don’t know. But I know that just to do what I used to do, I’m forced into this system. I’m not really getting cheaper deals than I used to as a “member.” In essence, the stores are forcing me to share info. simply to buy some bread. I used to not have to do that. 4 weeks ago
