    On today's blog post from Mike he announced that Linkin Park have joined "Ping", a new iTunes social network by Apple. Mike states that we could see what the band is up to, what they are listening to, maybe reviews of shows they attend and more.

    If you use iTunes, make sure to update to version 10 and then add Linkin Park. Their Ping profile can be found here.

    What the hell is Ping and why should I join yet another social network?

    Sorry to sound crass but this oversaturation of social networking and expecting me to follow the band from a million places for the same information is just alienating.

    You don't sound crass. I personally agree with you.

    Since I don't use iTunes all that much I most likely won't use this, but it might appeal to some people.

    Got to have a credit card to register with iTunes Store (which is thereafter needed to use Ping, I guess)

    FTW!

    So.
    1. I use Linux and there is no I-Tunes for Linux (I could get it to work if I wanted though)
    2. I don't have an I-Tunes account
    3. I don't want one
    4. You have to pay for an account I think and thus access to the site , no thanks
    5. Really? Facebook, myspace, youtube, Digg, Wordpress, what next, AOL and Google and Bing? LP I love you but stop trying to take over the internet.

    4. Having to deal with the fact that it is Apple is payment enough. In fact, it's worse than a money fee. :p

    4. You need not pay. Just gotta give your credit card details.
    5. Not the internet? The world seems the second best option. :D

    To all non iTunes users : You don't have to pay for an iTunes account ! My account is 4 years old and I did never pay for this account. In addition, you don't need a credit card to create an Apple account. The registration is free. In case you are willing to purchase music, but you don't want use a credit card, you can buy an iTunes Gift Card in stores.
