Most of New York’s subway systems are going wireless, which is amazing because it means I can stream music while I commute. And what has made this development even better is Grooveshark’s new easier, mobile-sharing functionality that let’s me share the music I’m streaming, directly from my phone.
Just click the song’s share button, copy the link & send to a friend. Voila!
Many of us are hyper-connected these days to our mobile devices and our networks. Music itself is an entirely social entity – for me at least. Most songs in my playlists have a very specific person, mood or scenario associated with them. Streaming and sharing can keep memories alive and loved ones close, making this feature that much more important.
What makes you want to share music? Do you have any songs in particular that really bring you back?
