Grooveshark Music Sharing Website
Type of Site: Music Sharing Community
Listen! Grooveshark.com is an awesome website for music lovers everywhere, and they just launched Grooveshark Lite. As a music lover I’m lovin’ it. It’s so easy to navigate through it. The easy-to-use style reminds me of Google. The search is extremely easy, and the page effects slide in and out super smooth and fast. You can find artists, songs, albums, etc. And easily too!
Not only can you find millions of songs, you can listen to them all free!
Once you set up your own account you can save music to a play list and quickly hear your music where you arrive. Organize your music and share lists, or Y see what people are looking up the most by clicking the Popular button, or view recent searches by clicking Recent. If you don’t know what your looking for you can always click on All Music and just browse.
They also have a system where you can earn credit towards free songs by participating and sharing with others. The three founders from the University of Florida are attempting to bring a common sense, legal solution which the music industry has been unable to resolve. Grooveshark has a cool system where people search for music through a community of rated participants. If they find a song on your computer, and buy it, the artist gets paid, and SO DO YOU! This way everybody’s happy.
They have over 5000 beta users to get things started, and expect to create “feeding frenzy” according to founder-CEO Sam Tarantino
