A fun, social networking site to hear and share music.

I found out about blip.fm by clicking a 'tweet 'on Twitter.  I immediately registered with the name 'jillogradydjlady' and began to 'blip' my favorite songs.  One can find a song by entering the name, artist, or keyword.  The available songs are hosted all over the internet on servers or websites and are availble to play on blip.fm and also to share with other djs or listeners on the site .  Music can also be sent to friends on other social networking sites.

Blip.fm becomes interactive by adding favorite djs and being able to contact them and give or receive 'props'.  It's interesting to hear what others are playing and fun to be able to find out how they like the music you play.  Somehow,  all my blips turn into tweets and I am getting a good following.

This past week, I discovered Blip.fm (think Twitter meets last.fm).        When you sign up, you become a "DJ".  Then you "blip" a song you like and send it out into the Blipposphere (like Tweeting).  You can write a little message (like a Tweet) to accompany the song.  Every DJ in the Blipposphere has access to the song that you blip and can play it by clicking on it (the songs are extracted from different websites, and it's all free).  …

If you’ve never heard of Blip.fm and you love music as much as I do, you need to check out this site. It’s been referred to as a “music recommendation and streaming site”, an “online music discovery service that enables person-to-person music recommendation through a social playlist” (wow – say that ten times fast) and even a “work in progress”. Personally, I refer to it as being like Twitter for Music on Steroids! This site rocks …

Run your own Internet radio station!  Build a playlist of your favorite music and distribute your selections via Twitter and other social networking sites.  Embed your favorite songs on your blog.  Find others who share your musical taste, and follow them to find new music you like...these are just a few of the cool things you can do through Blip.fm.    I found Blip.fm through an online friend's Twitter feed on LiveJournal, and was immediately impressed.  …

About this topic

Wiki

Blip.fm is a micro-blogging and music sharing site that brands itself as "Twitter for music." The service is free and allows users to share songs and artists with all of their friends via short micro-blog posts, similar to Twitter or Pownce.

Users do not need to own the songs they share on Blip.fm, as the service has search functionality that pulls the songs in from three other services: Seeqpod, Skreemr and also parent company Fuzz's own database of songs. The songs can then be played on the site's internal player.TechCrunch: Twitter for music (May 12, 2009)
