Apple abandons his music social network has never been as successful as expected.
Rather than stay afloat projects whose success is mixed and that requires resources both material and human, Apple prefers to turn the page. This is the case for the live music social network Ping, which closes on September 30. There is already accepting more new members and all posts regarding Ping therefore disappear at the end of September.
However, iTunes should invest a little more on social networks with better Facebook integration, which is clearly the reference network currently. The new version 11 of iTunes integrating Facebook will be available in the month of October. Apple hope, this time around, do not miss the manna social networks.
