Like.fm is a new music discovery app. It has already been termed a shareable version of iTunes on some tech blogs, and that’s pretty accurate as Like.fm can track all the music that you are playing and generate a list with your favorite songs. This list will then be shared with all your friends.
And when I say “all your friends”, you should take that literally – Like.fm uses your Facebook account in order to work. All your social network friends who also have the app installed (and who choose to follow you) will receive this automatically-generated list, and learn first-hand which music you love best.
Still, it’s important to mention that not simply because you have played something that particular song will be part of your list. When using Like.fm, you are actually empowered to remove tracks manually from the finished list before it is sent to all the people who are following you.
Right now, Like.fm can capture both the songs you listen to online, and the ones you play on your computer. In both cases, the application runs silently on the background. The list will be compiled without you having to do anything, other than remove “offenders” when the list is finally ready to be sent out.
