A niche social network that focuses on music-related topics, Ping allows users to post thoughts and opinions about a particular song, album, or artist and share it with their friends. You can also view concert listings and tell your friends what concerts you’re attending.

Ping also allows users to follow their favorite artists. Similar to Twitter, MySpace, or Facebook, following an artist on Ping will allow users to view artists’ activities. You can see photos they’ve uploaded, videos, announcements on tour dates and much more. Perfect for the stalker who has a lot of free time on their hands!
