Last.fm is a global online music service that tracks people’s music listening habits - across many devices/platforms and via its world-class personalized music service – to help them discover and share new music through recommendations, exploration and the integration of social networking tools.
Key features of the service:
* Your Music Listening History
Track all your music listening almost anywhere via a process we invented called "Scrobbling"
* Personalized Music & Event Recommendations
The more users scrobble, the more data we have to help them discover new bands and gigs, based on what they listen to, what their friends, listen to and what’s emerging in hundreds of different genres, globally.
* A global encyclopedia of music. Each artist has an individual wiki-based page that collects biographical data, discographies, track details, photographs, aggregated listening stats, similar artist data, user-generated tags and other information.
* Social Features
Share new favorite bands and weekly listening history to social networks like Facebook and Twitter. Active community for music fans to discuss their discoveries.
