For those who don't feel connected enough to the world of music, Apple is filling the void with the 'Ping' Social Network. Although it appears to be just another environment to display your bio and interests, this system is actually designed specifically for users of iTunes as a way for them share their musical preferences.

Interestingly, the 'Ping' Social Network will not be web-based, and will only be accessible through iPods, iPhones, as well as laptops. Stats for Music-Sharing Social Apps Trending: Older & Chilly
