    Doug's AppleScripts for iTunes already has a iTunes-to-Twitter script, and macosxautomation.com already has a 'Post iTunes URL to Social Networks' script. So, what's the big whoop with Ping if I don't want to manager yet another social network?

    This is totally F'd in the A without Facebook. I did a few searches and it won't allow you to follow artists unless they have themselves already setup a page. I suppose that works for a few artists, but not most and certainly not for any bands no longer around (unless fan pages start popping up).

    This is exactly like how Apple advertised MMS on the iPhone and pulled it back.

    Ping won't go anywhere without Facebook.
    Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

    Dear Steve Jobs,

    Even Facebook owns you.

    Sincerely,

    Everyone.

    Ping is a stupid name. Apple could come up with a better name.

    This looks pretty bad since it doesn’t Facebook connect. What are you supposed to email all your friends??? Would someone mind following me so I can mess with it some more. Just search for Kurt Cobain. What? You think I should have become the 6th Justin Bieber???
    I thought my carrier was bad til I got a new web host

    Yeah that's Sad since Facebook is Vary Popular.I'd go as far as to say more popular than Myspace. I think Steve should have Sucked it up and Allowed facebook to simply add it. It's not like FB is asking For Secrets..lmao

    Facebook allows interconnection between other sites, apps and so on, using their API for free and without permission. It's to their benefit. But with 160 million registered users on itunes, 10% of that alone would swamp facebook and overload servers if they used ping to find facebook friends. FB wouldn't let apple use their API's without permission. These were the conditions that have been referred to in the discussions between apple and FB. This one isn't about money it's about volume.

    I'm wondering if this is why the release of itunes 10 was late?

    I hope they stay separate, people can just use Facebook if they want them.
