Following artists and friends
Use Ping to connect with the world’s most passionate music fans. Follow favorite artists to learn
about new releases and upcoming concerts and tours, get an insider’s perspective through their
photos and videos, and learn about their musical influences. Read friends’ comments about the
music they’re listening to, and see what they’re buying and which concerts they plan to attend.
Finally, express your musical likes and post comments for your own followers.
To create and explore musical connections, you need to create a profile.
Create your iTunes Ping profile: Open the iTunes application on your Mac or PC, click Ping, and
follow the onscreen instructions.
Tap Ping (if Ping isn’t visible, tap More first), then explore Ping. You can do the following:
Follow an artist
Tap Follow on their profile page.
Follow a friend
Tap People and enter your friend’s name in the search field. Tap your friend,
then tap Follow.
When you follow someone, they don’t automatically follow you. In your
profile you can choose to approve or decline requests to be followed as
they arrive, or simply accept all new followers without review (the default).
Share your thoughts
As you browse albums and songs, tap Post to comment on a piece of music,
or tap Like just to say you like it. Your friends will see your thoughts in their
Ping Activity feed.
Share concert plans
Tap Concerts on your profile page to see upcoming concerts by the artists
you follow, and see which of your friends are going to a concert. Tap Tickets
to buy your own ticket, or tap I’m Going to let others know you’ll be there
too. (Not available in all areas.)
