What is Turntable.FM?
Here are some details about this new site that is currently in beta testing. It is a fun unique way to share music with friends and interact and chat. All via the world wide webs. There are 5 dj spots and it’s a turn based system. You can either search for songs or upload your own. Each person plays a song and the crowd can react by voting if the song is “Awesome” or “Lame” if enough people vote that the song is lame the song skips and its on to the next one. Each time your song is “liked” or voted awesome you get points for your avatar, the more points you get, you can change your avatar’s costume. Easy enough right? I think it’s the simplicity of the site that makes it enjoyable. If you need more info about the site check the video above.
I will start opening up the room for people to hang in while I am in the office, before I go on the radio. The idea is you can share some music, meet some people, and chat it up all at the same time. For now this is the link to my room. Check back often and I’ll let you know when the room is open via twitter.
Also, if you have never been on Turntable.FM you will need to have a friend who is on Facebook that has. It is the way Turntable is spreading the invite. No big deal just recommend this link below and add me on Facebook once you recommend this link, I will add you and we will be able to connect.
I also created a group on FB where you can connect with other Turntable.FM users and post the links to your room, and also talk about some new music you guys are diggin. Everyone gets accepted so share the link and grow the group. Join the turntable.fm Facebook group.
The other thing that you could do that would be amazing and help me out is subscribe to my newsletter. I periodically send out up dates and its usually stuff people find of vaule, things like this, artist interviews. It’s an easier way to keep everyone up todate on whats happening on the Internet.
*Update* It also looks like Turntable.fm is experiencing some legal copy right issues. The whole ordeal is pretty complicated but because the site is interactive there might be some problems with the way it is being operated. All the details are laid out in this post I found online.
Thank you for reading this, subscribing, and recommending this to your friends.
