One of the new cool things about the new facebook is the real time sharing of music. There’s a number of different apps out there but it seems the #1 in use is Spotify. I have a beta account, I like it but new people who sign up with it are also required to attach it to their profile. That also means that when they listen to songs they’ll also be broadcasting to their newsfeed. It’s a vicious (or smart) cycle, eh? Some people might have a little issue with that.
Like it or dislike it – you can easily hide or block the App in your newsfeed from just a single person or everyone. Easy to do.
Why would I want to block just a single person’s music?
If you know me, I’m a kilt wearin’ bagpipe lover 24 hrs a day. There’s nothing sweeter than starting the day with a little “Scotland the Brave” turned all the way up to 11.
But, you might be more apt to be listening the latest Rebecca Black song.
And while that’s ok, I might not enjoy your choice in music as much as you do. 😉
And then there’s my clients – who are also friends on Facebook. Most of my clients also LOVE the Pipes so no problem there. Do they like your music? Does your music choice reflect negatively on me? We tell our kids all the time that people will judge you by the kids you hang out with.
That’s why although I might respect your choice in music, I also value your friendship, but I’m blocking your music. Thanks Facebook!
