Most of you have probably heard about the new Facebook addition you can put on (applications, they call ‘em … I always thought it was like job applications, but turns out they mean it in the sense of “programs.” Yeah.) — the Music Blogs app. Well, with no effort on my part, Bon Ton is on there. I searched for it out of pure humor, but lo and behold. If you have a blog, and you have Facebook … you better go see yourself on there.
It lets you stream all the music that is featured on each blog. I don’t like it because it’s divorced from the commentary, and the commentary is why I read music blogs. If I wanted a bunch of random music, I’d go hang out on the hype machine. Music blogs’ personas can be trusted to help you find music you like. But! If you already have some blogs you trust, then here’s a quick way to preview music, find artist links, and visit blogs you like (Facebook obviously doesn’t let you download). It’s … sort of nifty. I am not a cool kid and I mostly use Facebook to connect with my in-laws, but this could be good for some easy listening.
