created a social media called PING which was a Music based platform. It was
launched September 1st 2001 and gathered 1 million members in 23
countries. The social media allowed members to see
and follow their favourite artists and friends. It was accessible through
iTunes on IPad, IPhone, IPod and mac. Apple
officially shut down the service on September 30th, 2012, and instead
integrated iTunes into Facebook and twitter. There were many issues with this
idea, one problem was that there was a lot of people reporting spam within 24
hours of lunch. The spam mostly included links to ‘free phones’ or ‘free IPads’
in exchange for filling out a survey. Another issue was limited access. The
social media platform was initially available in 23 countries, all of which had
full access to ITunes, but countries such as Chile,
the Czech Republic, Croatia, Kosovo, Albania and India couldn’t access Ping.
