I found an interesting social networking site for music lovers from all angles. It’s called Music Lunge, a social networking site designed to help Indie and Major artists with digital music and music video distribution, ringtone distribution and song mastering.
Wouldn’t it be cool if you uploaded some music on the site and the next day you heard it on someone’s ringtone? That’s instant recognition.
Music Lunge offers the personal page malleability of sites like Facebook or MySpace, allowing members to keep up with friends’ status updates and photos. In addition, videos can be uploaded, browsed and searched with a service comparable to that of YouTube, and a Twitter-like micro-blogging feature, are all readily available and easy to use. There is no need to get technical by having to use an “APP” or a “TAB” to place music or videos to your profile page.
“We are not here to compete with the other social networking mega sites, like Facebook or MySpace, we are here to give the musicians and music lovers a social networking website of their own,” says new CEO, Jason Pomales.
With digital music and music video distribution, Music Lunge promises artists and labels the opportunity to sell their music on 130 worldwide online stores such as iTunes, Rhapsody, Spotify, Napster, Listen Japan for music and iTunes and Vevo for music videos.
Music Lunge will also enter the realm of digital distribution by competing with digital distribution giants as CD Baby, Tunecore.com, Reverbnation.com and many more, but offering worldwide online outlets for labels and musicians at a competitive price.
Music Lunge is not stopping there. The social networking site has even bigger plans launching its broadcast division, “bringing the social networking era into a new age”. The division will also be offering Music Video Email distribution, offering artists to send music videos to their fans on a personal level.
All in all, Music Lunge is calling itself a new contender for the social networking crown, and although it’s still in the lightweight category, only time will tell if it brings a unique advantage to the table and will revolutionize the social networking world.
