Songza: Free Social Music [#FollowFriday]

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 900+ #FollowFriday recommendations on Twitter throughout the first thirty seven weeks of 2011, it seems as though the AudioAcrobat team can safely say that we’re very excited to share this week’s featured profile with our readers … as we are to listen to the new Ladytron album which just dropped!

With last week’s feature focusing on the Play-Button for the Web – Wibbitz – 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 a company that believes good music makes life worth living!

In today’s posting, we will not only share this week’s featured #FollowFriday account, @songza, but will also take our readers in for a closer look at twenty five of the five hundred seventy nine accounts @songza is currently following … a mirror, if you will, into the soul(-cial media) behind a company whose mission is to help you find the radio station that perfectly fits your mood or whatever you’re doing right now; in other words, to help you find your soundtrack.

Yep.  That’s right, we just said it … “soulcial media”.  We also said “a company whose mission is to help you find the radio station that perfectly fits your mood or whatever you’re doing right now; in other words, to help you find your soundtrack” in the same sentence.  Pretty spiffy, huh?

More about Songza

Songza is special for two reasons: our unique radio stations and the way we help people find them.

Our radio stations cover a wide array of themes, contexts, interests, activities, feelings and eras. For example, we have stations called “Songs In Apple Commercials,” “90s One-Hit Wonders,” and “Music of Fashion Week.” Our stations are also made by real people, not algorithms. Some of these people are the music experts that work at Songza, but most of them are users like you and your friends, who want to share their handmade stations with the community.

In order to help you find these great radio stations, we personalize your Songza experience based on your interests. (Think: Netflix, but for music.) Additionally, we use Facebook Connect to show you what your friends are listening to and enjoying, because sometimes that’s the best way to discover new music.
