iTunes on Mac OS X and Windows can now be used as a form of social networking, thanks to
iLike.com’s new sidebar for iTunes. It supports Mac OS X v10.4.
iLike.com provides users with a “buddy list,” visible in the iTunes sidebar. It also gives users a profile of their music listening habits and lets them look at the music libraries of their friends. The software provides recommendations for free MP3 downloads from almost 200,000 independent musicians available from iLike.com’s GarageBand.com Web site.
