Listening to music synchronous seems to become a main feature to music social networks. Lately two webbased music players with chat functions have been introduced here for private music sharing and listening and now some music sharing services do offer the same.
At first there is console.fm, which is rather an internet radio and music aggregator with chat than a music sharing site. The service accesses the music hosting and sharing service SoundCloud, fetches electronic music and assort it by genres. Now members are able to listen to whole lists of music of particular genres or to particular tracks by an integrated music player and are able communicate by an integrated chat system.
outloud.fm is more comfortable by having more functions. Like console.fm the service has playlist functions and chat, but additionally it enables to upload own files and to access SoundCloud to look for music yourself. Beside using public chat rooms the service offers the opportunity to create private chat room for listening to music like the webbased music players mentioned above. Last but not least the service has a good integration with Facebook and Twitter enabling the direct access to profiles and to become a friend by just one click on an chat avatar.
