If you are an regular iPhone user you probably heard about Ping which is considered as a company which focus on musics and social networking services, and by the time Ping became decreasing in it’s work so according to a report from the folks at All Things Digital claims that Apple is looking to kill Ping in the next new iTunes update.
All Things Digital‘s Apple guru John Paczkowski reports:
“And rather than continue to maintain Ping, the company is abandoning it and using its partnerships with Twitter and Facebook to make its various software and service offerings social in a way that consumers actually care about.
Sources close to the company say that Ping, which still exists today in iTunes 10.6.3, will be gone with the software’s next major release, likely scheduled for this fall. And at that point Apple’s social networking offerings will shift to Twitter and new partner Facebook entirely.”
From two years ago Ping was announced and it really made it’s own way through iTunes to discover new music but things didn’t go well especially after an important deal with Facebook fell through, and user activity dropped, it seemed the service was destined to fail. So are you still using Ping or not ?!If you found this post useful, hopefully hit the +1 (recommend) button ⇉
