Apple's Ping vs. Zune Social
I'm surprised there is no discussion about this. Ping sounds like a somewhat lame effort to duplicate the Social.
From discussions I've read and heard, it sounds like Ping requires you know other Ping members before you can "friend" them. Otherwise it seems very similar to Zune Social. Giving listeners a place to present their interests and for Artists promote their works.
Discussions have suggested it is an effort for Apple to further control artists by giving them controlled access to listeners.
Several have complained about a lack of access to other social groups such as Twitter and Facebook. Something not directly available through Zune Social except through Microsoft' Windows Live.
Any comments??? Anybody?? Does anyone really use the Zune Social??
