Turntable.FM – The Newest Music Social Networking Craze

Turntable.FM has only been around for a few months, but it’s already taking the Internet (or at least the music-loving wing) by storm.  The concept itself is so simple and fun I wish I would’ve thought of it myself. Users, or DJs, spin tunes in a chat-room setting – up to five DJs can take turns playing songs in one room.  Listeners rate the song choices as “awesome” or “lame,” and DJs can earn points, so it essentially can become a competition.  There is also a chatting function for each room, and the music selection is diverse and vast.  It’s a great way to discover new music, chat music with friends and acquaintances, and share your favorite tunes with like-minded people.  Needless to say, I’m intrigued and addicted by it.

The site is in beta testing and currently invite-only, and there are some bugs and glitches being worked out, but I look forward to seeing this thing when its completed and ready for the masses.  Visit it today and try it out for yourself – I got an immediate invite when I signed into Facebook, apparently if you have a friend already on (if you’re friends with me, you do), you’re good to go, so give it a shot.
