With more music being made by more people than ever before, how can someone even begin to find something that they might like?
Online music discovery remains a growth area. The methods can be divided into three categories:
- Automated sites: Algorithms offer suggestions based on your profile (Last.fm, Pandora)
- Social recommendation: Tips from friends and crowdsourcing (Facebook, Turntable.fm)
- Human-powered curation: Real humans with real ears and real opinions (Shuffler.fm and, er, this site)
Which is right for you? ReadWriteWeb summarizes everything.
