I’ve been using Last.fm for over ten years and for any music lover it is a must have service.
What is Last.fm?
Last.fm is a music recommendation service and has a feature called scrobbling which keeps track of songs you play. My scrobbles go back to 2006 and I can check on a week by week basis what I was listening to at any particular time period.
How does Last.fm work?
Using a music recommender system called “Audioscrobbler”, Last.fm builds a detailed profile of each user’s musical taste by recording details of the tracks the user listens to, either from Internet radio stations, or the user’s computer or many portable music devices.
I’m recently transferred all my playlists from iTunes to Spotify and Last.fm is really helping me do this. Last.fm and Spotify also work really well together both on desktops and mobile devices.
It’s a free service and is brilliant for discovering new music too based on your listening habits.
There’s a real time “currently listening to” feature so if you want to see what someone is listening to right now – you can!
The website has recently undergone a big transformation so it’s even better than before.
If you are not already on last.fm then get on it, if you are then please feel free to follow me.
