Getting started with iTunes Ping

Getting started with emailHow to get up to speed with Apple's new music social network Just a few short weeks ago, Apple unveiled Ping, a new social network with a musical twist. Ping allows users to connect with their favorite artists as well as their friends using a simple interface that is built right in to the all-new iTunes 10. The service is based on an ever-growing number of users who share short updates about what they're doing or funny quips on their Ping home pages, similar to updates on other popular social media sites like Facebook.

If you're following friends on Ping, you can read comments regarding their daily livGetting started with iTunes Pinges, while if you follow musicians, you'll likely get updates about new music or releases they're currently working on. In addition, Ping is able to see the music you're listening to and share that with anyone who follows you or checks out your profile, as well. This allows you (and the rest of Ping users) to track each other based on musical interest, a feature that few social networks have gotten right.

Getting started with iTunes PingWhen you first update to iTunes 10, Ping will be located under the Store menu on the right side of the window. Clicking it for the first time will prompt you to create your profile and info page. You can enter as much or as little information here as you want, and once you're done, you'll be able to enter the world of Ping.

From the main Ping page, you can search for artists, other Ping users, or simply check out whatever or whoever is currently being promoted on the Featured tab. Artists appearing in this section typically have either just released a new album or made some other large announcement that warrants attention. Once you've gathered a sizable crew of both artists and friends to follow, you can check back whenever you want to see what your favorite people are up to. 

As with any social network still in its infancy, Ping has started off with a whisper rather than a roar. Adding to the challenges it faces is the fact that the web is filled with more ways to interact with other people than ever before. Because of this, Ping seems to be facing a bit of an uphill battle. However, that is bound to change as more and more users realize that it is a great way to keep in touch with their favorite artists and other music fans around the world.
