The #FollowFriday Series highlights today’s up-and-coming, active and all-around noteworthy Twitter accounts the AudioAcrobat staff deems worthy of following; while at the same time peering deeper into the soul(-cial media) of each account and providing a brief-yet-informative analysis.
After making 750 #FollowFriday recommendations on Twitter throughout the first thirty weeks of 2011, its becoming more and more apparent that the AudioAcrobat team keeps it movin’ … much like Shunda K.
With last week’s feature focusing on the technology behind Alfred, an app that provides curated recommendations in tune with your tastes, location, and situation – Clever Sense – being so well received, shared and re-tweeted by our readers, we’re once again back at it for another ½ fortnight’s worth of fun and factual tweets combined for your reading (and clicking) pleasure in this here WordPress weblog.
…Now to connect with the world’s largest music catalog for social media!
In today’s posting, we will not only share this week’s featured #FollowFriday account, @rumblefish_inc, but will also take our readers in for a closer look at twenty five of the three hundred forty accounts @rumblefish_inc is currently following … a mirror, if you will, into the soul(-cial media) of the leader in the music licensing industry.
Yep. That’s right, we just said it … “soulcial media”. We also said “the leader in the music licensing industry” in the same sentence. Pretty spiffy, huh?

More about Rumblefish:
Rumblefish is a pioneer in music licensing and has been a trusted provider of music for top TV shows, films, ad agencies and video games for over a decade. The company has always made artists and labels its priority, and has paid millions in royalties to its members for the licensed use of their music. Rumblefish launched the Music Licensing Store in 2006, dubbed “an iTunes for Corporate America” (CNBC). It was the world’s first online resource for 100 percent copyright-cleared music for businesses. In 2008 the company struck a landmark licensing deal with YouTube and in the summer of 2010 deepened that relationship with the launch of Friendly Music, a website where consumers can license soundtracks. The company now boasts the world’s largest music catalog for social media and diverse clientele including Animoto, Virtual Active, Amazon Studios, Kaiser Permanente and Google among others.
